The problem seems to be the character set used by the Server to communicate with client applications since you state the table has a collation of "utf_general_ci".

The only way to make this work would be to change the character set in the system configuration (system variables) of the MySQL Server. I think it should be the "character_set_client" and/or "character_set_connection" system variables.

If the character set for those variables is set to "latin2" even if the DB, table or column is set to accept UTF characters, it will never work since the communication is established using latin2.

Best regards.
