Editor\'s note: On July 22, 2014, the government announced the deportation of 20 convicted criminals back to Hungary after the prosecution of the country\'s largest human trafficking case in history.
The Minister of Public Safety, Steven Bunani, announced the expulsion and took unusual steps to name nine criminals.
Dad, Hungary, we were sitting in the crowded office of the local Gypsy Council, and a burly man walked past the door.
Janos Kozak, a high
Ranking officer of the gypsy self
The Hungarian government movement, introducing itself, began to look through several mugshots scattered on the president\'s desk.
Kozak recognized the face of the defendant and sorted the photos into a temporary family tree showing the connection between the family of Domotor on one side and the family of Kolompar on the other.
We came to Papa to find out how this small city in western Hungary became the gateway to Hamilton\'s alleged human trafficking operation, which led to more than 60 allegations of Gypsy descent against more than a dozen people.
Both the alleged victims and the number of alleged perpetrators have made this the largest human trafficking case in Canada\'s history.
We also came here to find the families of domotters and colompas, although we were warned that they had little chance to agree to speak to outsiders from Canada.
Hungary, Kozak took out his phone and dialed the number of one of the family members we were looking for, without a hint, Rudolph Domoto. He’s the 37-year-
The old brother of Ferentz Domoto
Described by the RCMP as the leader of Hamilton\'s suspected organized criminal gang.
Two other brothers in Hamilton\'s prison, his father faces charges, his sister faces charges, has been taken away by the police for two months, and his nephew is under house arrest in Burlington
Phone number for Rudolf Kozak Domotor\'s answer.
Can he drop by the Gypsy board office and talk to two Canadian journalists?
He replied that it was impossible because he was on a business trip.
How about tomorrow?
No, he will go.
With the help of Kozak, we keep the conversation as long as possible.
Domotor continues to answer questions about his family in Canada, sometimes in English, sometimes in Hungarian, sometimes in calm, and sometimes in irritability.
Then Kozak suddenly said goodbye and hung up.
\"He said he would be here in three minutes,\" Kozak said . \".
It doesn\'t even take that long.
The door is open, wearing a black Calvin Klein coat and diamond, on the way to Domoto
His wife followed him, wearing a ring with nails, and his hair was golden, an inch.
Fake nails and fake leopard
Boots with high heels
Domoto himself is no stranger to Hamilton.
He lived on the mountain from 2000 to 2005, and then again from 2008 until he returned to his father in August, shortly after the RCMP filed human trafficking charges in Hamilton.
He knows the charges his family is facing. -
Workers from the Papa area were recruited to Hamilton and kept in the basement of the slave area
Forced to work long hours without pay, like conditions.
It was all lies, he said angrily.
\"It\'s legal and I can prove it,\" said Domotor . \".
He said that his family used a valid work permit to operate a legitimate construction business and that the workers were paid and that they were not under constant supervision.
He said that during lunch in Hamilton, the workers can often be found at Tim Houghton or KFC stores.
Sometimes they take the crew to the Mandarin restaurant on James Street for dinner.
Who is the boss?
\"There is no boss,\" he said sharply . \"
\"It\'s not true, so there\'s no boss.
\"There was a boss at the time, but that was the organization.
But not like a gang.
\"But he was asked why all 19 victims would make the same allegations to the police?
\"There may be two answers,\" said Domotor . \".
\"One, because they may be Hungarian.
Another reason-
They may be bad guys.
\"This is a passing by for Domotor\'s historical hatred between gypsy and non-Gypsy
The Gypsy in Hungary dates back centuries.
Does Domotor prevent
The mood of the Gypsy has now spread to Canada.
\"I don\'t want to look biased against Canada, but what happened is not correct,\" he said . \".
\"Canada used to be a friendly and enthusiastic country earlier, but it seems to be replacing Canada\'s mindset,\" added Domoto\'s wife, ludofen.
Domotor said that he spoke to his brother Ferenc every day and that Ferenc is now under house arrest in anccast and that he said that he was not doing well knowing that his wife was in prison, his son was also under house arrest in Burlington.
\"What should he feel when he is wrongly accused of these things? ” Domotor says.
\"He can\'t be calm.
Domotor claims that, despite his frequent contact with his brother, he does not speak to his fleeing sister and does not know her whereabouts.
He did say that his father, who moved to Hamilton last year, returned to his father two months ago.
When told that his father was also facing charges now and was considered a fugitive, Domotor seemed really surprised.
\"He\'s 70 years old and he\'s very sick,\" Domotor said incredibly . \".
At one point, Domotor leaned over the table and showed a quick anger.
As the interview progressed, he began to answer as many questions as possible.
He said loudly in Hungarian: \"I will give you a fair answer and I hope you will give a fair answer.
Domotor, who is skeptical about the justice system, believes that the truth will be published in court.
\"I pray to God that innocent people will not get hurt,\" Domotor concluded . \".
\"I pray to God that those who lie will be punished.
According to the RCMP, the main sales of the human trafficking circle are Ferenc Domotor Sr.
He left Hungary 13 years ago.
But in dad, the person that people remember and are afraid of is Ferenc caradi ---
Is considered as a Domotor Sr.
Lieutenant Hamilton.
In February 2009, Karadi was sentenced as early as 2001 for extortion and intimidation fraud in Hungarian courts for nearly five years.
However, instead of reporting to the prison, Kaladi fled to Canada.
Ironically, he is now sitting in Hamilton prison for refusing bail on charges of human trafficking.
Vice President Tamas Aldo
The mayor of dad said he was not surprised when he learned that Kaladi and others had been charged in Canada.
\"I don\'t think he will change,\" Aldozo said . \".
\"He did not work from dawn to evening.
\"He said he had never taken the tools and he was proud of it,\" he added . \".
\"He said that the only thing in his hand was money and (women).
Aldozo is well aware of Karadi\'s reputation.
For many years, the Office of the under-secretary-general
The mayor\'s party is at the well of Kaladi.
Located near the main shopping street in the city center.
According to the vice president
Mayor Kaladi, who was born in Papa, changed his name from Kolompar, the common surname of the Hungarian Gypsy family and the surname of the three defendants in the Hamilton case.
It is not clear whether Kaladi is associated with the other Kolompars collected by Hamilton.
Aldozo says Karadi is part of what he calls the \"nobility\" of the Papa gypsy community, and his house is the \"little center\" of his organization \".
\"But it\'s not mafia, it\'s not that complicated, there\'s no killing,\" he added . \".
However, according to the court\'s report, there were threats of violence that were later confirmed by local police.
In Hungary\'s 2009 trial against him, the court heard that Kaladi and his associates began to extort money from a local businessman who runs the city\'s licensed outdoor market.
It is reported that Kaladi is educated in the eighth grade and earns a living by buying and selling metal.
His income is estimated to be as high as 1 million a month. about $5,000 -
This is about 10 times Dad\'s typical monthly salary.
Starting in 2001, Carla Di and his associates asked the victim for money and told him that he would never be able to get into dad again unless he paid and that his relatives would be killed.
Every two years, when the market license is renewed, Kaladi and his associates will revive their extortion plan and threaten the merchants.
For the second time, if their demands were not met, they also threatened to rape his daughter.
In total, the victims paid Kaladi and his associates.
1 million forint, Hungary, about $16,000.
When Kaladi approached the merchant for the third time in 2005, he finally called the police.
The court also heard another case, which dates back to 2003, involving the owner of a popular cafe in dad\'s main shopping street.
According to court reports, kaladdi and his female partner went to the cafe, but the owner told them that they would only be served if they registered regularlyuser card.
Kaladi lost his temper and came back with six other people in the evening to start provoking other customers.
When the owner asked them to leave, Kaladi accused the owner of discriminating against him because he was a gypsy.
The next day, Kaladi hired homeless people to sit in a cafe trying to disrupt the man\'s business.
Then Kaladi tried to extort 500,000 forint. about $2,500 -
From the owner of the cafe, tell him that he will regret what he did to Kaladi and that the family of the owner will be immersed in the blood.
In an interview with the audience at his cafe, the owner said that instead of paying caradi, he immediately called the police. But the owner -
He asked for anonymity because he was still worried about Kaladi\'s family
He said it took several years for the police to gather enough evidence to make the charges.
The owner called Kaladi a \"very scary\" man who said he spent nearly £ 900,000 after being threatenedabout $4,500 -
Equipped with safety for his cafe
He added that Kaladi never came back after the safety equipment was installed.
The owner was not surprised when told that Kaladi was being held in Hamilton prison.
\"He should go to jail after what happened here,\" The man shrugged.
Akos Nagy, an investigator for dad Police, said he was happy to hear that Domotors and kolompar were in jail, \"I hope they stay there.
\"* In a lonely subdivision on the edge of dad, next to the towering mound of urban garbage, we found the brother of Ferenc Karadi, Antal Kolompar.
In contrast to his brother\'s comfortable house in the center of the town, Kolompar lives in a shabby little bungalow in the middle of the Gypsy enclave.
Kolompar said that he is not closely related to his brother, does not know how he made money with his father, and does not know his current legal issues in Canada.
He didn\'t want to talk about caradi.
Instead, he mainly wanted to talk about the struggle faced by the Hungarian Gypsy.
Kolompar claims that he has worked for 30 years and is now receiving a meager pension of $150 a month.
He said the modest pension could force him to work in Austria to help support future generations who still live with him.
According to Kolompar, Hungary\'s attitude towards its gypsy minority is shameful, \"Hungary should be excluded from the EU.
For more than five centuries, there has been friction between Hungary and a small number of Gypsy (also known as Roma.
In Canada, the word \"Roma\" is considered politically correct, but in Hungary the word \"Gypsy\" is more acceptable without the same derogatory sense.
Roma are believed to have migrated from northwestern India about a thousand years ago.
By the 15 th century, they were basically nomadic and spread throughout Europe.
It is well known that the population is estimated to be unreliable, but it is believed that as many as 12 million Roma live in Europe.
More than half of Roma in Europe live in former Soviet countries in Eastern Europe, and Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria are the most concentrated countries for Roma.
In Hungary, there are as many as 800,000 Roma, accounting for 8 of the country\'s population.
In Papa in about 3,000 population in have about 33,000 Roma origin.
It is clear that many Hungarian locals in Papa have an undisguised aversion to their Gypsy neighbors and consider them to be the cause of many problems in the city.
\"The Gypsy came to Hungary before 500 and they were unable to integrate into society,\" said Vice President Aldomayor.
\"They have no land in their history, no houses in the town, they are nomadic people.
\"During World War II, the Jewish minority of Papa was destroyed by the Holocaust.
\"The Gypsy has taken over many empty apartments and houses,\" said Aldozo . \".
Differences between gypsy and non-Gypsy in the communist era
The Gypsy is reduced because everyone is asked to work, \"If you don\'t work, you will be sent to prison,\" Aldozo said . \".
However, in the 21 years since the fall of communism, jobs have become scarce, especially for those who lack skills and education.
Mr. aldoso said that the unemployment rate in Papa has soared to 12 percentage points, and he estimates that the gypsy population accounts for half of the city\'s jobless population.
Walking around dad for a day, it\'s easy to see the difference in living conditions between Hungarians in the city and their gypsy.
The center of the city looks like a typical quaint European town with large historic churches, cobblestone streets, small shops and cosy cafes.
However, scattered throughout the city is the slums of several Gypsy, in stark contrast to the tidy homes of other residents of the city.
Attila Samu showed us some of the Gypsy parts of dad.
Samu runs a small car rental company, starting with several American colleagues to meet the needs of military personnel who are now stationed in dad.
The former Soviet air force base in the city in 2008
Was once the largest in Hungary.
It is home to the NATO fleet of transport aircraft deployed to Haiti and Afghanistan.
We took Samu as our guide and came to the shabby Gypsy House outside dad.
\"I don\'t want to go in,\" Samu said . \" There was a hint of concern in his voice.
\"The police are here every day because there are beatings and rape there.
\"He parked his car on the edge of the driveway, the engine was running and ready to escape quickly if necessary.
We stayed long enough to take a few photos quickly, but that\'s all.
Samu then drove through several streets to a place he called \"Gypsy Lane.
\"This is a small painted red townhouse.
According to Samu, the tiled roof built about seven years ago in the city is now almost entirely inhabited by Gypsy families.
Dirty houses, however, look more like they have been around for decades.
\"Look at these houses,\" said Samu, shaking his head . \".
\"They destroyed everything,\" he said . \"
\"They pull the wood floor up to make a fire, or they take out the windows and sell them.
Combating these deep-rooted stereotypes is a large part of the work of the local Gypsy Council.
\"There is a lot of prejudice against the Gypsy,\" said Banhegyi Holdosine, chairman of Dad\'s Gypsy committee.
The Gypsy population is the largest among the 13 official ethnic minorities in Hungary.
In 1993, the new legislation gave these minorities the right to form local councils to represent their interests.
The Gypsy Council of dad
Coordinate cultural programs and advise the municipal government, although they do not have the right to vote.
Holdosin knows the stereotypes against the Gypsy --
\"They don\'t like school, they are lazy, they don\'t like work,\" she lists one by one . \".
She said the news of the Hamilton allegations of human trafficking would only exacerbate tensions, especially since everyone knew the accused and his family.
She also stressed that, regardless of the allegations in this case, the crime did not belong to any group.
\"Everyone who decides to live a criminal life does this,\" Holdosine said . \".
* Most people in Hamilton have a hard time finding dad on the map.
But after walking for two days in this small city, we met four people who lived in Hamilton.
At the end of a street not far from Dad\'s town hall, there was a wooden door with an empty carved inside --out door.
Behind the opening, a muddy path winds through two rows of dilapidated sheds.
We\'re here because we \'ve been told that the last sister on the left who belongs to Rudolph and Ferenc, Gizella Domotor, is now being looked for by the RCMP.
A man who lives next door told us that she is not at home and has not been there for several years.
He introduced himself to Gyula Vide and said he had a relationship with Domotors, although he could not really describe how.
He said he once lived in Hamilton and worked as a painter for three months in 2004.
We were invited to the kitchen and called at a friend who spoke better English.
Her name is Anna Maria, and she used to live in Hamilton. Anna Maria -
She refused to give her last name.
She said that she lived in Stoney Creek from 2000 to 2006, went to school and worked in St.
When her refugee application was rejected, Joe was at the hospital before returning to dad.
She hopes to return to Hamilton one day.
\"I know that life in Canada is so different for Hungarians because they have so much work and everything there,\" said Anna Maria . \".
This unlikely connection between dad and Hamilton raises two questions.
Why did people seize the opportunity to leave Hungary?
More importantly, why are so many people from the Papa region attracted to Canada by a suspicious commitment from a group of so-called human traffickers?
\"People are willing to take risks going abroad because there is no work here,\" said holdosin, president of the local Gypsy Council . \".
Shortage of jobs, especially-
Payment is a concern of both gypsy and non-GypsyGypsies.
One night there was a noisy gift in a local hotel --
Two staff members left Papa for similar positions in Austria, and their salary was two to three times.
We have been told that this is not the first time dad\'s people have left for a greener ranch.
It will be more subtle to answer the second question. Papa’s vice-
The mayor made an outspoken assessment.
\"I think they want to make a lot of money without really working,\" Aldozo said . \".
Common ground of so-called victims
Including Gypsy and non-GypsyGypsies -
This is an immature behavior, he said.
\"They are very simple people,\" Aldozo said . \".
\"They don\'t have special skills or careers, they don\'t know much about the world, they get a lot of money.
\"It\'s easier to believe this than to work,\" added Gabo Kiss, Aldozo\'s assistant.
Tomorrow: \"You will regret it 10 times when you come here.

\"The police are here every day because there are beatings and rape there.
\"He parked his car on the edge of the driveway, the engine was running and ready to escape quickly if necessary.
We stayed long enough to take a few photos quickly, but that\'s all.
Samu then drove through several streets to a place he called \"Gypsy Lane.
\"This is a small painted red townhouse.
According to Samu, the tiled roof built about seven years ago in the city is now almost entirely inhabited by Gypsy families.
Dirty houses, however, look more like they have been around for decades.
\"Look at these houses,\" said Samu, shaking his head . \".
\"They destroyed everything,\" he said . \"
\"They pull the wood floor up to make a fire, or they take out the windows and sell them.
Combating these deep-rooted stereotypes is a large part of the work of the local Gypsy Council.
\"There is a lot of prejudice against the Gypsy,\" said Banhegyi Holdosine, chairman of Dad\'s Gypsy committee.
The Gypsy population is the largest among the 13 official ethnic minorities in Hungary.
In 1993, the new legislation gave these minorities the right to form local councils to represent their interests.
The Gypsy Council of dad
Coordinate cultural programs and advise the municipal government, although they do not have the right to vote.
Holdosin knows the stereotypes against the Gypsy --
\"They don\'t like school, they are lazy, they don\'t like work,\" she lists one by one . \".
She said the news of the Hamilton allegations of human trafficking would only exacerbate tensions, especially since everyone knew the accused and his family.
She also stressed that, regardless of the allegations in this case, the crime did not belong to any group.
\"Everyone who decides to live a criminal life does this,\" Holdosine said . \".
* Most people in Hamilton have a hard time finding dad on the map.
But after walking for two days in this small city, we met four people who lived in Hamilton.
At the end of a street not far from Dad\'s town hall, there was a wooden door with an empty carved inside --out door.
Behind the opening, a muddy path winds through two rows of dilapidated sheds.
We\'re here because we \'ve been told that the last sister on the left who belongs to Rudolph and Ferenc, Gizella Domotor, is now being looked for by the RCMP.
A man who lives next door told us that she is not at home and has not been there for several years.
He introduced himself to Gyula Vide and said he had a relationship with Domotors, although he could not really describe how.
He said he once lived in Hamilton and worked as a painter for three months in 2004.
We were invited to the kitchen and called at a friend who spoke better English.
Her name is Anna Maria, and she used to live in Hamilton. Anna Maria -
She refused to give her last name.
She said that she lived in Stoney Creek from 2000 to 2006, went to school and worked in St.
When her refugee application was rejected, Joe was at the hospital before returning to dad.
She hopes to return to Hamilton one day.
\"I know that life in Canada is so different for Hungarians because they have so much work and everything there,\" said Anna Maria . \".
This unlikely connection between dad and Hamilton raises two questions.
Why did people seize the opportunity to leave Hungary?
More importantly, why are so many people from the Papa region attracted to Canada by a suspicious commitment from a group of so-called human traffickers?
\"People are willing to take risks going abroad because there is no work here,\" said holdosin, president of the local Gypsy Council . \".
Shortage of jobs, especially-
Payment is a concern of both gypsy and non-GypsyGypsies.
One night there was a noisy gift in a local hotel --
Two staff members left Papa for similar positions in Austria, and their salary was two to three times.
We have been told that this is not the first time dad\'s people have left for a greener ranch.
It will be more subtle to answer the second question. Papa’s vice-
The mayor made an outspoken assessment.
\"I think they want to make a lot of money without really working,\" Aldozo said . \".
Common ground of so-called victims
Including Gypsy and non-GypsyGypsies -
This is an immature behavior, he said.
\"They are very simple people,\" Aldozo said . \".
\"They don\'t have special skills or careers, they don\'t know much about the world, they get a lot of money.
\"It\'s easier to believe this than to work,\" added Gabo Kiss, Aldozo\'s assistant.
Tomorrow: \"You will regret it 10 times when you come here.

Editor\'s note: On July 22, 2014, the government announced the deportation of 20 convicted criminals back to Hungary after the prosecution of the country\'s largest human trafficking case in history.
The Minister of Public Safety, Steven Bunani, announced the expulsion and took unusual steps to name nine criminals.
Dad, Hungary, we were sitting in the crowded office of the local Gypsy Council, and a burly man walked past the door.
Janos Kozak, a high
Ranking officer of the gypsy self
The Hungarian government movement, introducing itself, began to look through several mugshots scattered on the president\'s desk.
Kozak recognized the face of the defendant and sorted the photos into a temporary family tree showing the connection between the family of Domotor on one side and the family of Kolompar on the other.
We came to Papa to find out how this small city in western Hungary became the gateway to Hamilton\'s alleged human trafficking operation, which led to more than 60 allegations of Gypsy descent against more than a dozen people.
Both the alleged victims and the number of alleged perpetrators have made this the largest human trafficking case in Canada\'s history.
We also came here to find the families of domotters and colompas, although we were warned that they had little chance to agree to speak to outsiders from Canada.
Hungary, Kozak took out his phone and dialed the number of one of the family members we were looking for, without a hint, Rudolph Domoto. He’s the 37-year-
The old brother of Ferentz Domoto
Described by the RCMP as the leader of Hamilton\'s suspected organized criminal gang.
Two other brothers in Hamilton\'s prison, his father faces charges, his sister faces charges, has been taken away by the police for two months, and his nephew is under house arrest in Burlington
Phone number for Rudolf Kozak Domotor\'s answer.
Can he drop by the Gypsy board office and talk to two Canadian journalists?
He replied that it was impossible because he was on a business trip.
How about tomorrow?
No, he will go.
With the help of Kozak, we keep the conversation as long as possible.
Domotor continues to answer questions about his family in Canada, sometimes in English, sometimes in Hungarian, sometimes in calm, and sometimes in irritability.
Then Kozak suddenly said goodbye and hung up.
\"He said he would be here in three minutes,\" Kozak said . \".
It doesn\'t even take that long.
The door is open, wearing a black Calvin Klein coat and diamond, on the way to Domoto
His wife followed him, wearing a ring with nails, and his hair was golden, an inch.
Fake nails and fake leopard
Boots with high heels
Domoto himself is no stranger to Hamilton.
He lived on the mountain from 2000 to 2005, and then again from 2008 until he returned to his father in August, shortly after the RCMP filed human trafficking charges in Hamilton.
He knows the charges his family is facing. -
Workers from the Papa area were recruited to Hamilton and kept in the basement of the slave area
Forced to work long hours without pay, like conditions.
It was all lies, he said angrily.
\"It\'s legal and I can prove it,\" said Domotor . \".
He said that his family used a valid work permit to operate a legitimate construction business and that the workers were paid and that they were not under constant supervision.
He said that during lunch in Hamilton, the workers can often be found at Tim Houghton or KFC stores.
Sometimes they take the crew to the Mandarin restaurant on James Street for dinner.
Who is the boss?
\"There is no boss,\" he said sharply . \"
\"It\'s not true, so there\'s no boss.
\"There was a boss at the time, but that was the organization.
But not like a gang.
\"But he was asked why all 19 victims would make the same allegations to the police?
\"There may be two answers,\" said Domotor . \".
\"One, because they may be Hungarian.
Another reason-
They may be bad guys.
\"This is a passing by for Domotor\'s historical hatred between gypsy and non-Gypsy
The Gypsy in Hungary dates back centuries.
Does Domotor prevent
The mood of the Gypsy has now spread to Canada.
\"I don\'t want to look biased against Canada, but what happened is not correct,\" he said . \".
\"Canada used to be a friendly and enthusiastic country earlier, but it seems to be replacing Canada\'s mindset,\" added Domoto\'s wife, ludofen.
Domotor said that he spoke to his brother Ferenc every day and that Ferenc is now under house arrest in anccast and that he said that he was not doing well knowing that his wife was in prison, his son was also under house arrest in Burlington.
\"What should he feel when he is wrongly accused of these things? ” Domotor says.
\"He can\'t be calm.
Domotor claims that, despite his frequent contact with his brother, he does not speak to his fleeing sister and does not know her whereabouts.
He did say that his father, who moved to Hamilton last year, returned to his father two months ago.
When told that his father was also facing charges now and was considered a fugitive, Domotor seemed really surprised.
\"He\'s 70 years old and he\'s very sick,\" Domotor said incredibly . \".
At one point, Domotor leaned over the table and showed a quick anger.
As the interview progressed, he began to answer as many questions as possible.
He said loudly in Hungarian: \"I will give you a fair answer and I hope you will give a fair answer.
Domotor, who is skeptical about the justice system, believes that the truth will be published in court.
\"I pray to God that innocent people will not get hurt,\" Domotor concluded . \".
\"I pray to God that those who lie will be punished.
According to the RCMP, the main sales of the human trafficking circle are Ferenc Domotor Sr.
He left Hungary 13 years ago.
But in dad, the person that people remember and are afraid of is Ferenc caradi ---
Is considered as a Domotor Sr.
Lieutenant Hamilton.
In February 2009, Karadi was sentenced as early as 2001 for extortion and intimidation fraud in Hungarian courts for nearly five years.
However, instead of reporting to the prison, Kaladi fled to Canada.
Ironically, he is now sitting in Hamilton prison for refusing bail on charges of human trafficking.
Vice President Tamas Aldo
The mayor of dad said he was not surprised when he learned that Kaladi and others had been charged in Canada.
\"I don\'t think he will change,\" Aldozo said . \".
\"He did not work from dawn to evening.
\"He said he had never taken the tools and he was proud of it,\" he added . \".
\"He said that the only thing in his hand was money and (women).
Aldozo is well aware of Karadi\'s reputation.
For many years, the Office of the under-secretary-general
The mayor\'s party is at the well of Kaladi.
Located near the main shopping street in the city center.
According to the vice president
Mayor Kaladi, who was born in Papa, changed his name from Kolompar, the common surname of the Hungarian Gypsy family and the surname of the three defendants in the Hamilton case.
It is not clear whether Kaladi is associated with the other Kolompars collected by Hamilton.
Aldozo says Karadi is part of what he calls the \"nobility\" of the Papa gypsy community, and his house is the \"little center\" of his organization \".
\"But it\'s not mafia, it\'s not that complicated, there\'s no killing,\" he added . \".
However, according to the court\'s report, there were threats of violence that were later confirmed by local police.
In Hungary\'s 2009 trial against him, the court heard that Kaladi and his associates began to extort money from a local businessman who runs the city\'s licensed outdoor market.
It is reported that Kaladi is educated in the eighth grade and earns a living by buying and selling metal.
His income is estimated to be as high as 1 million a month. about $5,000 -
This is about 10 times Dad\'s typical monthly salary.
Starting in 2001, Carla Di and his associates asked the victim for money and told him that he would never be able to get into dad again unless he paid and that his relatives would be killed.
Every two years, when the market license is renewed, Kaladi and his associates will revive their extortion plan and threaten the merchants.
For the second time, if their demands were not met, they also threatened to rape his daughter.
In total, the victims paid Kaladi and his associates.
1 million forint, Hungary, about $16,000.
When Kaladi approached the merchant for the third time in 2005, he finally called the police.
The court also heard another case, which dates back to 2003, involving the owner of a popular cafe in dad\'s main shopping street.
According to court reports, kaladdi and his female partner went to the cafe, but the owner told them that they would only be served if they registered regularlyuser card.
Kaladi lost his temper and came back with six other people in the evening to start provoking other customers.
When the owner asked them to leave, Kaladi accused the owner of discriminating against him because he was a gypsy.
The next day, Kaladi hired homeless people to sit in a cafe trying to disrupt the man\'s business.
Then Kaladi tried to extort 500,000 forint. about $2,500 -
From the owner of the cafe, tell him that he will regret what he did to Kaladi and that the family of the owner will be immersed in the blood.
In an interview with the audience at his cafe, the owner said that instead of paying caradi, he immediately called the police. But the owner -
He asked for anonymity because he was still worried about Kaladi\'s family
He said it took several years for the police to gather enough evidence to make the charges.
The owner called Kaladi a \"very scary\" man who said he spent nearly £ 900,000 after being threatenedabout $4,500 -
Equipped with safety for his cafe
He added that Kaladi never came back after the safety equipment was installed.
The owner was not surprised when told that Kaladi was being held in Hamilton prison.
\"He should go to jail after what happened here,\" The man shrugged.
Akos Nagy, an investigator for dad Police, said he was happy to hear that Domotors and kolompar were in jail, \"I hope they stay there.
\"* In a lonely subdivision on the edge of dad, next to the towering mound of urban garbage, we found the brother of Ferenc Karadi, Antal Kolompar.
In contrast to his brother\'s comfortable house in the center of the town, Kolompar lives in a shabby little bungalow in the middle of the Gypsy enclave.
Kolompar said that he is not closely related to his brother, does not know how he made money with his father, and does not know his current legal issues in Canada.
He didn\'t want to talk about caradi.
Instead, he mainly wanted to talk about the struggle faced by the Hungarian Gypsy.
Kolompar claims that he has worked for 30 years and is now receiving a meager pension of $150 a month.
He said the modest pension could force him to work in Austria to help support future generations who still live with him.
According to Kolompar, Hungary\'s attitude towards its gypsy minority is shameful, \"Hungary should be excluded from the EU.
For more than five centuries, there has been friction between Hungary and a small number of Gypsy (also known as Roma.
In Canada, the word \"Roma\" is considered politically correct, but in Hungary the word \"Gypsy\" is more acceptable without the same derogatory sense.
Roma are believed to have migrated from northwestern India about a thousand years ago.
By the 15 th century, they were basically nomadic and spread throughout Europe.
It is well known that the population is estimated to be unreliable, but it is believed that as many as 12 million Roma live in Europe.
More than half of Roma in Europe live in former Soviet countries in Eastern Europe, and Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria are the most concentrated countries for Roma.
In Hungary, there are as many as 800,000 Roma, accounting for 8 of the country\'s population.
In Papa in about 3,000 population in have about 33,000 Roma origin.
It is clear that many Hungarian locals in Papa have an undisguised aversion to their Gypsy neighbors and consider them to be the cause of many problems in the city.
\"The Gypsy came to Hungary before 500 and they were unable to integrate into society,\" said Vice President Aldomayor.
\"They have no land in their history, no houses in the town, they are nomadic people.
\"During World War II, the Jewish minority of Papa was destroyed by the Holocaust.
\"The Gypsy has taken over many empty apartments and houses,\" said Aldozo . \".
Differences between gypsy and non-Gypsy in the communist era
The Gypsy is reduced because everyone is asked to work, \"If you don\'t work, you will be sent to prison,\" Aldozo said . \".
However, in the 21 years since the fall of communism, jobs have become scarce, especially for those who lack skills and education.
Mr. aldoso said that the unemployment rate in Papa has soared to 12 percentage points, and he estimates that the gypsy population accounts for half of the city\'s jobless population.
Walking around dad for a day, it\'s easy to see the difference in living conditions between Hungarians in the city and their gypsy.
The center of the city looks like a typical quaint European town with large historic churches, cobblestone streets, small shops and cosy cafes.
However, scattered throughout the city is the slums of several Gypsy, in stark contrast to the tidy homes of other residents of the city.
Attila Samu showed us some of the Gypsy parts of dad.
Samu runs a small car rental company, starting with several American colleagues to meet the needs of military personnel who are now stationed in dad.
The former Soviet air force base in the city in 2008
Was once the largest in Hungary.
It is home to the NATO fleet of transport aircraft deployed to Haiti and Afghanistan.
We took Samu as our guide and came to the shabby Gypsy House outside dad.
\"I don\'t want to go in,\" Samu said . \" There was a hint of concern in his voice.
\"The police are here every day because there are beatings and rape there.
\"He parked his car on the edge of the driveway, the engine was running and ready to escape quickly if necessary.
We stayed long enough to take a few photos quickly, but that\'s all.
Samu then drove through several streets to a place he called \"Gypsy Lane.
\"This is a small painted red townhouse.
According to Samu, the tiled roof built about seven years ago in the city is now almost entirely inhabited by Gypsy families.
