Hard rock musician Aleš Brichta will not be investigated for dissemination of hate speech, police have stated. Mr Brichta came under fire recently for lyrics viewed as racist in the title track of his album Deratizér (exterminator). The lyrics in question referred to “politicians making idiots of everyone, gypsies stealing bicycles in the street, something should be done by an exterminator”. Mr Brichta denied any racist intent, saying the song’s protest was aimed at politicians.
