Hungary: Police attend course after racist remarks

Thirty officers who made racist remarks about Gypsies on an internal police Web site were ordered to attend a special anti-discrimination course, but will not face disciplinary charges, officials said Friday. "I am very sorry that some of my colleagues overstepped the boundaries of free speech," National Police Chief Laszlo Bene told reporters. Sixty-eight offensive remarks - some calling for Gypsies to be beaten and sterilized and referring to them with insulting nicknames - were compiled by a former and a current police officer and sent to police commanders in October.
