In the Czech Republic many attacks are directed against the Roma community. Nevertheless, the members of other ethnic and national minorities are becoming victims of these attacks as well. Just as the origin and skin color are the common denominator of hate incidents, religious affiliation, sexual identity, health status, belonging to a subculture or a social group can also serve as a pretext for attack.
Hate incidents can take various forms. These include verbal attacks and insults (whose social impact is underestimated), graffiti, intimidation, threats or extortion, property damage, sexual assaults, arson attacks, physical assault and murder.
In 2011 the organisation In justicia elaborated a report aiming to provide a overview of the extend of hate crime in the Czech Republic and evaluate the legislative framework as well as implementation of different measures.
