Czech Police arrest man who painted Nazi graffiti

Most, 15.7.2014 16:14, (ROMEA)

Police have charged a 24-year-old man from the town of Litvínov (Most district) with displaying sympathy for a movement aimed at suppressing human rights and freedoms and criminal property damage. The man has admitted to spray-painting Nazi symbols on a building in the outskirts of the town of Most.   

Ludmila Světláková, spokesperson for the Most Police, informed the Czech News Agency of the charges today. If convicted, he faces up to three years in prison and has been released on his own recognizance.

"He used black paint to immortalize a Nazi swastika almost a meter high with the inscription 'Sieg heil', an SS division symbol, and a symbol labeled 88," Světláková told the Czech News Agency, adding that the case had been investigated by detectives specializing in extremism. The suspect was tracked down by the next day. 

"The young man has admitted that at the end of June, during the night, he painted the wall while en route to his residence and was well aware of the meaning of those symbols," Světláková said. The owner estimated the damage done to the facade at CZK 4 000.
