Football Playeer Fined 200,000 For A Nazi Salute

In Law on September 6, 2007 by Petr Bokuvka

Czech First League Player will pay 200,000 for what was qualified as “semi-Nazi salute. During the match he was “trying to calm down the fans” so he extended his arm twice in a row.

It was an unfortunate gesture and it had nothing to do with Nazi ideology, Pavel Horvath defends himself. However, a court-approved expert on extremism worked on a report that found this gesture extremely problematic. He said the Nazi salute, in order to be complete and to be qualified as racist, would have to be accompanied with the verbal gesture (I can’t write it here…).

No surprise here. Many fans who go to Czech First League matches seem to have only half a brain. Horvath seems to have lost his half for a while there. He says he was under the influence “of the atmosphere”… I am not buying this…
