S26 Prisoners

for the OPH report see: http://www.oph.cz/home/report.html

On 3rd April, next S26 trial took place in Prague. Two Spanish guys accused of "hooligenism" and "property destroy", Salvador Azcon and Miguel Oliv, were both sentenced to the expatriations for two years (without their presence at the trial). The judge said "with no doubt they threw stones to the windows of the Interbank on Vaclavske namesti. They cause 4.800 Kc (about $125) damage by it."

There are some other trial as well. K.Olejnik still face trial in Poland. Two Czech guys received suspended sentence for "attack against policemen." And a lot of trials are going to take place.

It seemed that everything would be OK, when Dane guy Mads Traerup was set free in the beginning of February. But now the situation gets much more worst and repression increases rapidly.

All prisoners now released, some on bail with trials to come.
The last was released after 71 days. 1.02.2001 Mads Thordal Traerup the 18 year old Dane was freed of all charges in the prague city court.
It was really great! The prosecutor recommended 2 years in jail or 500 000 kc as a fine and being banned from Czech Republic for ever. The 3 judges did not agree and cleared him of all charges.

3 policemen testified. their testimonies varied and they could not identify him positively. The prosecutor will think about appealing the case. Another Dane did not come to his courtcase which was to be held together with Mads'. The prosecutor wanted the cases to be treated as one. But they decided to ahead with Mads' case anywa Over the next weeks there will be more court cases in Prague.
