Gaudy palaces suspected of being built by Romany criminal masterminds on the back of criminal gang activities in the UK and other European countries are facing demolition.
Authorities in Hunedoara, a city in central-western Romania, are threatening to tear down the so-called ‘gypsy palaces’ which have appeared across the region because all were built illegally, and many of them are safety hazards.
Police believe most were constructed on the back of illicit criminal enterprises abroad.
