Later, he was charged with instigating hatred against a group of people. He is being prosecuted at large, the Sme daily wrote on August 10. If found guilty, he could face up to two years in prison.

Magát is the leader of Vzdor Kysuce group. He wrote on its Facebook page that he did not instigate hatred but, on the contrary, stressed the need to preserve each race and their right to existence. He also talked about the “threat of Zionism”, according to Sme.
