As an update to a post involving a web leak of Romani student data on the Czechoslovakian Ministry of Education site, Romea.cz has an update:
The Czech Interior Ministry has learned which bureaucrat published a list of Romani pupils including sensitive data about them to the ministry website. Czech Education Minister Josef Dobeš (Public Affairs – VV) told the press on Wednesday 9 November that he is firing the bureaucrat concerned but did not want to reveal the person’s name. He also would not confirm whether the bureaucrat involved is Marta Teplá, who recently publicly criticized the minister’s handling of Romani issues. Dobeš filed criminal charges against an unidentified perpetrator at the time of the incident.
“The person concerned is on medical leave after allegedly collapsing and I will address the situation once the person has recovered,” Dobeš said, adding that the person would be fired. “This is an enormous faux pas that must never be repeated. I am just toying with the notion of whether this was intentional or an example of colossal stupidity.”
