International arrest warrant issued for Tomáš Cermák

The Regional Court in Pilsen has issued an international arrest warrant for Tomáš Cermák, who was sentenced to 5.5 years in jail earlier this year for inciting a terrorist crime. The 36-year-old is in hiding and the police believe that he may have gone abroad to avoid serving his sentence. Čermak was the first person in Czechia to be convicted of inciting violence against politicians during the pandemic and hate speech against Ukrainians on social networks.
