Sme recently published video shot on June 20 as protests were held against refugee quotas in the capital. It raised the question whether the brutality of extremists did not provoke the police.

A man subsequently approached the daily claiming that he is not an extremist and he did not come to Slovak capital to participate on protests. Sme stated that it was not able to approve his claims.
