02-06-2009

The Interior Ministry has promised to have a manual on how to tackle extremism ready within a week’s time. The manual will be available online and will offer town halls and municipalities advice on how to go about banning or dissolving marches and demonstrations by far-right groups. It should also contain a list of banned symbols and dates relating to Nazi anniversaries. The manual is being put together by lawyers and experts on extremism at the request of town mayors who say they need help to counter growing extremism in the country.
