Police operation "Phoenix" against anarchists continues (Czech Republic)

Police have just announced that 3 people being held in custody were accused of terrorism. According to Czech law the minimum penalty for this crime is 12 years and it is one of the very few crimes with possible life sentence. Two other people are accused of not reporting this crime and the last two of illegal arms (police reported they found an explosive timed device made of a steel tube). The case is apparently very serious. Terrorism charge gives the police some extra power and rights.

Other people arrested are being investigated for “supporting the movement seeking to violate human rights and freedom”, which is a crime designated for use against hate movements [racist/far-right].

Police released this story to the public: those accused planned an attack with Molotovs on a train transporting Hyundai cars. Two of them should have obtained
the “explosives”, two others should actually attack the train, the last three should work as scouts. The attack should have taken place last November but never happened for an unknown reason, it is possible it was just delayed.

The police say that all of them belong to “Conspiracy of Cells Of Fire”. All people were under surveillance at least since last September.
