Sme daily reports on anti-Semitic chants by Trnava football fans

“What are you looking at, you Jewish fu..ers/whores!” reportedly shouted fans of the Spartak Trnava football club when they marched through the streets of Bratislava on Sunday evening September 12. Dozens of police officers were surrounding them but the officers seemed to ignore the anti-Semitic shouts and failed to take any action, the Sme daily wrote on September 13.

Slovakia’s Criminal Code has a prohibition on behaviour involving “the defamation of a nation and race” and violations are punishable with a sentence of one to three years in jail. If at least two people act so in a coordinated way, the sentence might increase to two to five years. The Sme daily has released a video showing the provocative chants and statements made by some of the Trnava football fans.
