First terrorist suspects in the Czech Republic on trial

The first ever trial of terrorist suspects in the Czech Republic has begun in Prague. Four Dagestanis, two Bulgarians and one citizen of Moldova are accused of counterfeiting documents with the intent of aiding terrorist activities from 2008 to 2010. According to the State Attorney Petr Boš, the defendants falsified dozens of documents for Dagestani terrorists who were staying in Germany. Four of the seven allegedly knew that the documents would end up in the hands of terrorists. Most of the defendants refused to testify on Wednesday. One man admitted his involvement, but denied that he was part of an organized group, stating that he was simply a middleman. All the defendants denied links to terrorists in the Russian Republic of Dagestan. The hearings will continue on Thursday and Friday.
