Anti-Islamic activist Martin Konvička told Czech Radio on Saturday he is preparing criminal proceedings against deputy mayor of Prague, Petr Dolínek, for alleged abuse of public office. The move follows the Social Democrat politician’s call for Prague City Hall to ban a meeting called by Konvička outside the Saudi Arabia embassy on Sunday. The call was made after water mains in the area burst leading to disruption. The meeting coincides with the 15th anniversary of the attack on the World Trade Centre in New York. Konvička has accused Saudi Arabia of being one of the main sponsors of terrorism worldwide. A previous meeting organised by Konvička in Prague’s Old Town Square at the end of August where he and some of his supporters dressed as Islamic State leaders caused controversy as well over whether it should have been banned or allowed to go ahead.
