A fan of the "Freedom and Direct Democracy-Tomio Okamura" (SPD) movement in the Czech Republic has been given six months in prison, conditionally suspended for two years, by the District Court in Prague 1 for displaying sympathy for a movement aimed at suppressing civil and human rights. In April this year the woman wore multiple pendants of the Nazi swastika to a demonstration convened by the SPD.
Pavla Hájková, spokesperson for the District Court for Prague 1, informed Czech Television of the news on 16 November. The verdict has taken effect.
"It was decided as follows: a prison sentence of six months, suspended for a probationary period of two years," Hájková told Czech Television, adding that the court's decision had already taken effect. The defendant did not appeal.
CCTV cameras captured the woman wearing the chains with the Nazi swastikas at the demonstration. They also captured 43-year-old Radek Mansfeld giving the Nazi salute - he has already been given a suspended sentence of six months in prison and fined CZK 30 000 - EUR 1 177 .
