Groups of far-right extremists wearing green T-shirts with the logo of Marian Kotleba’s People’s Party Our Slovakia (ĽSNS) will not be allowed to patrol on trains. This stems from the new rules for transport adopted by the state-run passenger carrier Železničná Spoločnosť Slovensko (ZSSK), the Pluska.sk website reported.

The new rules ban any form of business-making, sales, promotion, surveys and data collection in trains without ZSSK’s permission. This includes political campaigning or support of political programmes or mottos, even if passengers have a valid train ticket.

The ban may be applied even when members of ĽSNS will wear ordinary clothes, ZSSK’s spokesperson Ján Filip told the Sme daily.

Passengers do not need to be afraid that the carrier will order them leave the train if they will wear T-shirts with a logo of a company, band or their favourite political party, Filip added.

He told Sme they have not intervened in any specific situation yet.
