Foto: Štěpánka Budková Police have arrested several far-right extremists and carried out searches of their homes and cars. A spokesperson for the Brno regional authority told the website novinky.cz that the police had been acting under orders from a state attorney’s office in the Brno district. A lawyer who represents far-right activists quoted one of her clients as saying the arrests had been made in connection with internet web sites, articles and rock concerts.

Two regions to get dedicated riot units to deal with extremist events

Meanwhile, police in north Bohemia and north Moravia are to get special units dedicated to dealing with events involving political extremists, the head of the police in Ústí nad Labem, Oldřich Martinů, said on Tuesday. He said the number of events organised by extremists was expected to rise in future. Specialised riot police units only exist in Prague and south Moravia at present.
