10 things he really said: Zoltán Balog, Hungarian Minister for Human Resources

2017-10-24

By Bernard Rorke

Zoltán Balog, former Calvinist preacher turned minister of human resources in the Orbán government, is prone to saying outrageous things and straying off-script.

Fortnightly Roma news review: October 1-14

2017-10-17

One of the successful litigants, Seanad Asan said “The day when I found out about our travel ban, I felt like a stranger in the country where I was born.

By Atanas Zahariev

Gelem, gelem, lungone dromensa

Maladilem bakhtale Romensa
A Romale, katar tumen aven,
E tsarensa bakhtale dromensa?

A Romale, A Chavale

Sas vi man yekh bari familiya,
Mundardyas la e Kali Legiya
Aven mansa sa lumnyake Roma,
Kai putardile e Romane droma
Ake vriama, usti Rom akana,
