On March 28th, George Gascón, San Francisco City and County District Attorney and Richard Pivnicka, Honorary Consul General of the Czech Republic, signed a Memorandum of Understanding, which acknowledges and strengthens the relationship between the two respective offices and confirms that they will work together to provide coordinated assistance to crime victims, regardless of the victims’ citizenship status, with a special focus on assisting victims of human trafficking, hate crimes and domestic violence.
