He has been ordered to pay €5,000, as reported by the Aktuality.sk news website. The August 19 verdict is not valid yet.

“In case the fine is intentionally thwarted, the court has imposed a sentence of six months in prison,” the Specialised Criminal Court spokesperson Katarína Kudjáková said, as quoted by Aktuality.sk.

A prosecutor of the Special Prosecutor's Office filed a charge against Kmotrík Jr. in mid-August of 2019 for giving a Nazi salute and saying “Heil Hitler” after the May 2018 football match in Trnava.
