Czech Republic: Arrested neo-Nazi also sought by Austria
Detectives in the Karlovy Vary Region have begun criminal proceedings against a 41-year-old foreign national for misdemeanor disorderly conduct and expressing sympathy for a movement aimed at suppressing human rights and freedoms. The man charged is said to have committed this behavior this past weekend around midnight in a local restaurant in the town of Hroznětín.
The man is charged with physically assaulting a 20-year-old waitress in front of other customers, kicking her with his knee in the ribs and thigh behind the bar and punching her in the face. He then began giving the Nazi salute, raising his right arm in the air and shouting Nazi slogans.
Should he be convicted, the man faces up to three years in prison. During his arrest, police officers determined that the Austrian authorities are looking for him as well.
