“Several Nazi-themed posters had been hung up in public places in Velenje the night before last. The posters were removed from the streets on Saturday and the Celje police are conducting a hate speech investigation.

The six posters said ‘For Family, For Country, For the Race,’ with the final line followed by a swastika. At the bottom was a link to Discord, an application specialising voice-over communication for gamers.

The words were written in a Gothic script and the posters depicted a soldier wearing an iron cross, one of the main symbols of the Third Reich.” (STA)
