Two soldiers from an elite army unit serving in Afghanistan who wore Nazi emblems on their helmets have been dismissed from the military, Czech Defense Minister Martin Barták announced after Tuesday’s cabinet meeting. Neither will have the right to retirement or severance pay. Their commander, who allegedly tried to cover up the incident, has been suspended pending an investigation. Minister Barták said the soldiers behaviour was unacceptable and tarnished the reputation of Czech units serving abroad. On Monday, the minister dismissed a soldier who confessed that he had trained members of the neo-Nazi group White Justice in hand-to-hand combat.
