Czech Republic: Drunks give Nazi salute, assault cops, destroy cars

Lišov, 13.9.2012 0:21, (ROMEA)

Last Friday, three drunken ethnic Czechs shouted Nazi slogans, gave the Nazi salute, and smashed up cars and municipal property in the South Bohemian town of Lišov near České Budějovice. The main aggressor in the incident has been remanded into custody.

"Last Friday at around 10 PM, police officers intervened against a trio of drunken aggressors (aged 24, 26 and 28). The rioters stopped cars as they were driving down the street and kicked them. They also destroyed municipal trash cans and some signage with advertising and a map of the town, as well as damaging decorative bushes and even a public monument. According to the available information, the rioters were said to have shouted Nazi greetings and raised their right arms during their spree," police spokesperson Regina Tupá said.

The neo-Nazis shouted vulgar verbal insults at police officers who intervened against them, physically injuring one of them. Other law enforcement officers then managed to pacify the drunken aggressors.

"Three violent offenders now face criminal prosecution on suspicion of committing the crimes of rioting, violence against a public official, and expressing sympathy for a movement aimed at suppressing human rights and freedoms. In the case of the main actor in this incident, the 24-year-old man, the state prosecutor filed a motion for him to be remanded into custody. The judge granted the motion yesterday," the police spokesperson said.

Municipal technicians who have been looking over the destroyed property have determined that the drunks caused the town only minimal damage. "They more or less just broke some branches off of bushes and snapped off the little doors to some access hatches on the monument, which we've already fixed. We were not surprised that this incident took place, because the youths are locals with whom we have had problems in the past, they've been before the misdemeanor commission before," Jan Kudlata, secretary of the Lišov town hall, told news server
