Czech neo-Nazis celebrate Norwegian mass murderer
Czech neo-Nazos writing on the White Media website have thanked Norwegian assassin Anders Behring Breivik, the man who has confessed to committing Friday's massacres in Oslo and the island of Ut?ya, news server Lidovky.cz reports. News server Aktuálně.cz has reported that police are analyzing the article celebrating the man who by all accounts has murdered a total of 76 people.
According to the article, entitled "In Defense of Anders Breivik", the assassin's crime is more than understandable and has inspired many other people fighting against multiculturalism. News server Lidovky.cz reports that police do not yet know the identity of the author of the declaration but have long been following the extremist website. "Praising of a crime is naturally prosecutable," said Karel Kuchařík, head of the group for the detection of cybercrime.
"We are aware of the article. At this moment our cybercrime department is analyzing it in detail," Pavla Kopecká, spokesperson for the Police Presidium, told Aktuálně.cz. She was not yet able to say whether the text itself violates the law. According to terrorism expert Marian Brzybohatý, however, the author has committed several obvious crimes, violating three sections of the Penal Code - support and promotion of a movement aimed at suppressing human rights and freedoms, expressing sympathy for such a movement, and denying, doubting, approving of and justifying genocide.
Breivik, a 32-year-old right-wing extremist, has confessed to setting off a bomb in the government quarter of Oslo on Friday and then shooting at least 68 people on the nearby island of Ut?ya, most of them participants in a Social Democratic Youth camp. The most recent reports say he is responsible for the deaths of at least 76 people. Breivik claims his crime was motivated by his desire to protect Europe from "Muslim colonization". The killings are the greatest single act of bloodshed to have been committed in Norway since the Second World War.
