Czech organizer of anti-Roma demonstrations doesn't recall expressing a desire for mass murder

Jan Dufek, the man who was so looking forward to Czech citizens finally rising up to murder off Romani people, is now claiming that he doesn't stand by what he said. "I was upset and unfortunately I can't take it back now," Dufek has told news server iDNES.cz.

The well-known neo-Nazi did not clarify to iDNES.cz whom exactly he had in mind when he was talking about mass murder. "I don't know anymore, if I hadn't seen the video recording, I wouldn't have even remembered what I said then," Dufek claims.

Jan Dufek and Jindřich Svoboda are the organizers of what so far has been just one anti-Roma demonstration in the Czech town of Duchcov, a protest that was followed by an attempted march on Romani people's residences, but the pair have announced other demonstrations for the future. Mayor Jitka Bártová recently did her best to calm the situation in the town after the demonstration by convening a public discussion.

As can be seen from the statement captured on camera, Dufek and Svoboda are convening these anti-Roma demonstrations in order to deteriorate and escalate the situation such that non-Romani people will start murdering Romani ones. News server Romea.cz was the first to report on the case.

"We have the video and we are intensively investigating the case. Detectives are evaluating the recording and other evidence. The legal qualification of the crime has not yet been established. Whether the person captured in the recording is criminally liable is the subject of further investigation," Teplice Police spokesperson Daniel Vítek said.

"Jan Dufek may have committed a felony per Section 356 of the Criminal Code by making a statement inciting hatred against a group of people and/or restrictions on their rights and freedoms. Because he did that through television, he could face between six months and three years in prison should he be charged and convicted," lawyer David Oplatek, who has long been involved in litigating hate crimes, told news server Romea.cz.

Let's take a closer look at this man who claims he is so innocent and so upset that he loses his memory. We can start with some samples of the opinions posted to his Facebook profile:  

    "Today it doesn't matter if it's the gypsies or the Muslims. The white race is dying. It is no longer as grand and proud and that is thanks solely to the humanists and pseudo-saviors. How much longer will this dark era last?"

    "Just you try to vote for that JEW FIŠER!!! I don't understand how anyone can love that gypsy rhythm and that cunt Rolincova!!??"

    Posted beneath a photograph of an explosion:  "Ha ha I already know how we'll get the gypsies out of Dux"
    Jan Fischer responds to this post:  "Share the missiles around"
    Dufek responds: "Fišo I'd be very glad to, one batch of missiles per town"
    Fischer responds:  "If by one batch you mean a full B52"

According to Antifa.cz, both conveners of the anti-Romani actions in Duchcov are neo-Nazis. "Dufek is a longtime neo-Nazi activist. He has been previously convicted of giving the Nazi salute, weapons possession, and welfare fraud. He has reportedly also previously participated, along with a larger group of people, in attacking a group of Romani people in Slovakia. While standing on the main square in the town of Krupina there, he first insulted Romani people, gave the Nazi salute, threatened to shoot them in the head, and then physically assaulted them," Antifa writes in a press release.

Antifa.cz also reported on the neo-Nazi affiliations of Jan Dufek in a January 2008 article entitled "Oslavy v režii Jana Dufka z Duchcova" ("Celebrations as directed by Jan Dufek of Duchcov"). So far only Dufek has been captured on camera discussing the mass murder of Romani people.

As news server Romea.cz reported previously, Dufek's colleague Svoboda has expressed himself in the same terms on his own Facebook profile, as follows:  "So finally it's out! The secret video of the assault in Duchcov! Those black fuckers! They should all be massacred! How much longer will we tolerate this? I propose that it is time to unite and fucking give them what for! I'm going to go throw up and then I'm going to sharpen my knives...."

Jindřich Svoboda, known by the nickname "Pinďa", defended himself in a Facebook post stating that he is neither an extremist nor a radical. However, he also admitted being a member of the right-wing extremist Workers' Social Justice Party (Dělnická strana sociální spravedlnosti - DSSS).

Neo-Nazis and other ultra-right extremists are now competing with activists from the opposing camp to see who can announce more events in the town of Duchcov. The Konexe association and the Otrokem rasy ("Slave of Race") initiative have already announced events for several public spaces for as far as three months in advance, but the DSSS, Dufek and Svoboda are neck and neck with them in terms of making their own announcements. An overview of the events announced there is available on the town's official website.

Renata Berkyová: Concept of the Porajmos as a reflection of the marginalization of Roma in historiography

6.6.2018 13:25
In recent years, in connection with commemorations of the tragic fate of Romani people during the Second World War and the expansion of our awareness of the Holocaust and its Romani victims, a breakthrough event has been in the making. Apparently the most recent example of this in the Czech Republic is the state buyout of the pig farm located on the site of former so-called "Gypsy Camp" at Lety u Písku, which was preceded by years of relentless pressure on the highest state representatives by the relatives of the victims, activists, and experts.
