In view of the terms of article 9, paragraph 1, of the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, in particular the provision that the Committee may request further information from the States parties, and bearing in mind the provisions of articles 3, 4 (c), 5 (d) (i) and 5 (e) (iii) of the same Convention, the Committee requests the Government of the Czech Republic to provide it with information on the disturbing reports that in certain municipalities measures are contemplated for the physical segregation of some residential units housing Roma families. The Committee wishes to consider the information, in the presence of a representative of the State party, at its fifty-fourth session (119 March 1999) and would therefore appreciate receipt of this information by 15 January 1999.
