Czech Police Respond to Neo-Nazi Women's Group; Arrest 15 Members of Resistance Women Unity Org.

The Prague Daily Monitor website reports today (February 14, 2012) that Czech police have started criminal proceedings against 15 women believed to be part of a women's neo-Nazi organization.

Police said the women -- aged between 21 and 32 -- participated in the ideas of the neo-Nazi Resistance Women Unity (RWU) movement, which is the non-registered women's offshoot of the Nazi group National Resistance.

Some of the RWU's actions were aimed at providing help to neo-Nazi members who have already been jailed.

If the 15 women are found guilty, they could face up to eight years in prison, police said.
