Czech Helsinki Committee alerts Rice to neo-Nazi web pages
The Czech Helsinki Committee (CHV) has alerted U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to the existence of Czech neo-Nazis' web pages that are registered in the United States, in a letter addressed to her early this week when she was visiting Prague.
Rice and her Czech counterpart Karel Schwarzenberg signed in Prague on Tuesday the U.S. Czech treaty on stationing a U.S. radar base on Czech soil within the U.S. anti-missile shield.
The CHV wrote that Czech neo-Nazis and other similar extreme groups have a free access to Internet servers in the United States irrespective of the intolerant and aggressive character of the posted material.
The committee says this is due not only to the first supplement to the U.S. Constitution that guarantees freedom of expression, but also due to the lacking effective cooperation between U.S. and European states' security forces.
"The CHV considers it of fundamental importance that Internet-posted intolerant or directly neo-Nazi manifestations and their impact are similar to the consequences and impact of Internet manifestations that are banned in the United States, for instance, those connected with terrorism and child pornography," the letter says.
It says Rice should pay attention to this issue and try to initiate cooperation between Czech and U.S. security units.
