On Saturday a demonstration was held in the town of Budišov nad Budišovkou that was advertised as a “Commemorative march for Viktor Švarc”. Right-wing extremists attempted to exploit the as-yet unsolved death of Mr Švarc, who was 28 years old when he died.
Locals speculate that three Romani people allegedly assaulted Mr Švarc (who is not Romani) and are responsible for his death. The march was not convened by relatives of the deceased, but by Petr Borna, a member of the Workers’ Social Justice Party (DSSS), and by the infamous neo-Nazi Pavel Sládek Matějný, who ultimately did not attend the event.
Just before 14:00, locals, primarily pensioners, began gathering on the corners of the main square in Budišov nad Budišovkou and discussing how local Romani people had allegedly murdered Viktor Švarc. A truck drove through the square and a loud shout of “Sieg Heil!” was heard from it.
