By Amnesty International, , Index number: EUR 27/005/2011

Following an anti-Roma march by the far-right Jobbik party in the village of Gyöngyöspata on 6 March 2011, three vigilante groups have been ‘patrolling’ the area harassing and intimidating Roma residents.

Police have reportedly taken no action.
