Slovakia: Man could receive eight years for Nazi tattoos
A 33-year-old man from Trenčín, Slovakia faces up to eight years in prison for wearing Nazi tattoos. Police charged the man last Wednesday with the crime of supporting and promoting a group aimed at suppressing human rights and freedoms, news server Aktuality.sk reports.
Pavel Kudlička, spokesperson for the Trenčín Regional Police, says the defendant had the slogan RAHOWA tattooed on the crown of the head even though he knew it was the slogan of an American neo-Nazi organization ("Racial Holy War"). "On 11 February, on Bratislavská street in Brno, Czech Republic, this man publicly expressed his sympathy for a movement aimed at suppressing human rights and freedoms through this slogan," Kudlička said, adding that the man faces between four and eight years in prison if convicted.
