The leader of Slovakia's People's Party-Our Slovakia, Marian Kotleba, has been charged with "extremism" for the crime of donating 1,488 Euros to a charity for disabled children.
BRATISLAVA (Reuters) - The leader of Slovakia's far-right People's Party-Our Slovakia has been charged with extremism for "sympathizing with a movement aiming to suppress basic rights and freedoms", police said on Friday.
Local media reported that the charges are related to pictures the People's Party posted online in March. Those pictures showed an enlarged copy of a check donated to a charity for disabled children -- for 1,488 euros.This is the first I've heard of someone being criminally charged for a "racist" donation.
Evidently, since the party won 14 seats in the Slovak Parliament last year "in an electoral shock," the left-wing establishment parties have been doing all they can to throw the new lawmakers in prison.
Two of the party's lawmakers are already facing charges for hate speech against Roma, Jews and Muslims. Prosecutors took steps in May to ban the entire party, saying it posed a threat to Slovakia's democratic system.Nothing says "democracy" like throwing people in prison for their speech.
