"Today OOP Lipník nad Bečvou handed over its file material on the entire case to the SKPV, which will conduct further investigation in this matter with a possible change to its legal categorization," she said.
A 14-year-old Romani boy ended up in hospital with a bruised back and a concussion, one girl's thoracic cavity was injured, and a 12-year-old girl ended up with a bruised spine and dislocated nose after they were assaulted by a man and a woman in a park who eyewitnesses say were shouting racist abuse.
