Another officer of the Czech Army has been suspended for wearing Nazi symbols. The Czech news agency ČTK reported that Military Police detained the officer at an anti-aircraft brigade in Strakonice, south Bohemia, on Thursday. The soldier was immediately suspended, and will be charged with supporting movements to suppress human rights and freedoms, an army spokesman said.
The Czech Army launched thorough checks earlier this month to curb extremism in the ranks of the army. The measure was prompted by the case of two soldiers from the Czech army contingent in Afghanistan who wore Nazi symbols on their helmets.
