The court punished him with a suspended three-year sentence with a three-year probation supervision. Moreover, he will have to participate in a social training programme, the TASR newswire reported.

The 19-year-old man committed several crimes, including producing the extremist documents, spreading them, and inciting national, racial and ethnic hatred, said Marián Úkrop from the district prosecutor’s office in Žilina. The punishment corresponds with the fact that the man has not been prosecuted before, he added, as reported by TASR.
