Neo-nazis publish list of enemies

A NEO-FASCIST radical group NS Slovensko published a list of 28 young Slovaks on its website whom they consider "enemies of the white race". The neo-nazi group calls on skinheads to attack the people listed anywhere they can find them.

The neo-fascists write that the skinheads can train on the "enemies", learning how to track and monitor people. The list even features some addresses together with other information.

While lawyers consider publishing the list to be a crime, the website is run from Russia and therefore the Slovak Police have no jurisdiction to conduct an investigation into the website.
