Around 800 Czech Roma are heading back to the country from Canada according to Friday’s edition of the Czech daily Lidové noviny. Canadian authorities have turned down asylum requests from 400 Czech Roma with a further 400 giving up on the requests, the paper said. The expectations of a mass return were confirmed in Prague by the government office dealing with Roma affairs. It said that local councils would be approached to ensure that families who left could get back their flats without problems. Ottawa re-introduced visas for Czechs in July in reaction to an increasing number of Czech asylum seekers arriving in Canada.
