A WEBSITE providing pictures, the identities and personal details of people it alleges have contacts with the neo-Nazi movement in Bratislava and its surroundings is under investigation by police.

The site contains a section for people who might be known to the public and also a section of anonymous people whose pictures were taken at different gatherings and occasions. The list includes over 300 entries.

The police have begun looking into the site, which originates from a foreign server, making it more difficult for the police to take action.

The database includes the photographs of a well-known local football player, an Agriculture Ministry employee, and two policemen.

"We discovered that they really are members of the police corps," police spokesman Martin Korch told the Pravda daily.

"We are now checking on whether the two Bratislava policemen that the creators of the database included on their list have committed a crime or promoted fascism. If it is proven they have links with the neo-Nazi movement, we will consider it incompatible with their remaining with the police," Korch said.

It is suspected that the young anarchist or leftist opponents of neo-Nazi movements, united under the Antifa movement, are behind the site.

The site calls on the public to send in names and data on people they recognize in the photos.

However, the Bureau for the Protection of Personal Data has begun to take up the case since the site reveals personal data.
