Czech police find assault weapons in the home of an anti-Roma Facebook page author

Prague, 26.2.2010 19:40, (ROMEA)

Yet another Czech-language anti-Roma Facebook page has been set up recently, this time entitled “Prerov against Gypsies!” However, unlike the authors of previous racist Facebook pages, the author of this particular page will not get away with it so easily. News server reports police have detained the 19-year-old male.

Detectives found an air rifle with a targeting system and a submachine gun in the author’s home. Reports suggest the Facebook group had been previously shut down and then reopened without the original photographs, which promoted Nazi armed units with swastika flags.

Just before it was shut down, the social networking site had 248 members. After it reopened today, membership rose to 264. According to data posted on Facebook, the founder of the group is Karel Trojak of Olomouc, who endorses the Workers’ Party in his profile. Members of the group were not very active on the page, but police started investigating the problem at the suggestion of a TV Nova reporter.

Whoever founded the Facebook page is evidently uncivilized and uneducated, as are the other contributors who were glad to find yet another site against Roma. The page is headed by the slogan “YOU ARE NOT WELCOME IN OUR COUNTRY”. Czech chauvinists (extreme nationalists), fascists, neo-Nazis and other racists deliver similar messages to the Roma very often.
