A mob of more than 100 people attempted to obstruct the funeral of a Roma woman on the local graveyard of Dobruška Vas. After intervention of the police the funeral was carried out later the same day. The incident was condemned by Roma organisations and the Government. The Human Rights Ombudsman visited the area and requested from police an information and documentation on the case in order to assess if the police took proper actions in dealing with that case.
