Czech Neo-Nazi – No Hard Labour.
In other news, the organiser of a neo-Nazi march in the Czech Republic was sentenced to community service, rather than a custodial sentence which might have been more appropriate:
“Plzen, 27/11/2009 – Czech Tomas Babka, 22, was today sentenced to 300 hours of community work for his abusive statements on Jews during a march of rightist extremists that he organised in Plzen in March.
Babka originally faced up to two years in prison for incitement of racial hatred towards a group of people.
Babka confessed to the controversial statements, but he declined that they had promoted fascism and Nazism. He also denied having supported rightist radicals.
According to the police files, Babka spoke up at the end of a march “against Zionism” on March 14.
“Jointly for the idea of national socialism. Public resistance is a duty where injustice rules,” Babka is cited as saying during the march.
According to the charges, he thereby manifested his positive stance on national socialism and expressed support for a Nazi movement.
Babka was charged with support and promotion of movements suppressing human rights and freedoms.”
Oh, and Babka had a cunning defence, he said he was only against “Zionism”. Oh yeah, sure, what next? Some of your best friends are…?
Sure, sure, like we haven’t heard that one before. That’s getting a rather common defence, I wonder which neo-Nazi will use it next?
