Czech musicians face trial for neo-Nazi concerts

A court in Brno in the Czech Republic has begun trial hearings against a group of musicians for spreading racism and Nazism during concerts held in 2008-9.

The concerts were usually attended by some 300 extremists at which Nazi salutes were made and slogans shouted extolling Adolf Hitler and the U.S. Ku-Klux-Klan.

The indictment stretching over 90 pages describes songs calling for the annihilation of "dark-skinned people,” a racist reference to Roma used in the Czech Republic.

The songs also attack Jews and highlight the NSDAP Nazi party and the execution of almost 500 people in Bratislava in 1945, the indictment said.

If found guilty, the defendants could face up to eight years in prison.
