Mr Robinson, who is coming to Prague on the invitation of ANO party MP Milan Pour, is due to attend a conference on children’s rights with a lecture on the so-called grooming gangs in Britain.
The former leader of the right-wing activist group English Defence League, who currently serves as a political adviser to the leader of the UK Independence Party, has a criminal record with convictions for a number of offences. Mr Robinson has also been permanently banned from Facebook and Instagram for repeatedly violating their policies on hate speech.
