Two Serbian fans of the football team Red Star Belgrade who attacked people with telescopic metal truncheons in the centre of Bratislava last week have been given suspended sentences of six months each by the Bratislava Regional Court.
Bratislava Regional Court spokesman Pavol Adamčiak told the TASR newswire on Monday, August 9, that the Court on Saturday found Mark Ivkovic and Jovan Bulatovic guilty of having committed the crime of rowdiness. According to the prosecution, the fans attacked a man in Bratislava, beating him over the head with their truncheons and kicking him over his whole body.
The police dealt with several incidents in Bratislava a day before the UEFA Europa League third qualifying round match between Slovan Bratislava and Red Star Belgrade on August 5. Up to 400 fans arrived in Bratislava the day before. Noisy scenes were witnessed during the night where the fans gathered on Hviezdoslavovo Square.
