Neo-Nazis Arrested in Spain

Seven neo-Nazis were arrested in Spain for intimidating black immigrants through the Internet, announced a representative of the National Police of Spain on Friday.

Our colleagues in Barcelona detained seven Neo-Nazis on charges of threats against immigrants, violation of human rights, membership in an illegal group and illegal possession of a weapon and ammunition.

According to him, the Neo-Nazi group has been active in the Catalonian capital since 2005, attracting young adults between the ages of 19 and 22, who then propagated their ideas through the Internet.

On their website, members of the group openly threatened to punish all non-Europeans in Spain and called for violence against all black immigrants, said the policeman.

He noted that members of the group were involved in producing and distributing Nazi symbols and literature promoting racial hatred and national socialist ideology.

A search of the suspects revealed 4 firearms and 4 000 cartridges, a Nazi uniform, swastika flags and armbands, as well as five computers, added the spokesperson.

In 2005, a large neo-Nazis network was discovered in Barcelona, with connections in other European countries and the USA. The organization targeted immigrants from Latin America.
