Czech Republic: 18 charged following raids on neo-Nazis

Detectives from the Czech Republic’s Organized Crime Detection Unit (ÚOOZ) charged 18 with the criminal offense of promoting a movement aimed at suppressing human rights following house raids Oct. 21 in Dobříš, Prague, Kladno and Tábor, in which a total of 24 were arrested. ÚOOZ head Robert Šlachta said those arrested belong to the organizations White Justice and National Resistance, and are suspected of preparing a terrorist attack. Among those charged is Patrik Vondrák, leader of the right-wing Workers’ Party in Prague. All but two were released on their own recognizance. (Romea, Prague, Oct. 23)
