News server iDNES.cz reports that a man demanding the release of 15 aggressive demonstrators who participated in last Saturday's neo-Nazi demonstration in Ostrava has threatened to murder the Mayor of Ostrava and his family. It did not take long for police to take him into custody, where he remains. 

The man called the emergency number and began threatening violence. "If you don't release those imprisoned and guarantee their safety, I will kill the Mayor of Ostrava and his family," he declared, ending the phone call with a Nazi greeting.

Police have begun providing protection to Mayor Petr Kajnar and his family. The mayor admits this is the first time such a thing has ever happened to him.

While the caller did not use his real name, it didn't help - detectives came for him within two hours. The man who made the call is a right-wing extremist who has regularly participated in anti-Romani events all over the country; according to police spokesperson Gabriela Holčáková he faces up to four years in prison if convicted.
