Reader feedback: Condemnation was issued

Re: Photos fan new Slovak-Hungarian tensions, TSS Online, August 23, 2006

The Slovak government did [condemn Slovak extremists] and the Slovak police detained the people responsible for the anti-Hungarian signs. It looks like they will be prosecuted on the charge of inciting hatred against other nations and races, and face up to three years in jail. On the other hand, I understand that the Hungarian police stated that no Hungarian law was broken in Budapest and at other stadiums in Hungary, that no Hungarian fans will be prosecuted for displaying anti-Slovak signs, and that the investigation of this matter has been closed.
