More Crimes by Far-right Radicals in 2004

In the past year, right-wing extremists committed more crimes than in 2003. According to data compiled by the Interior Ministry, some 12,600 crimes linked to radical right-wing groups were committed in 2004, up about 8 percent from the previous year. The increase corresponds to a more visible presence of neo-Nazis and skinheads at demonstrations and protest marches and the arrests related to such actions. But when compared across the board, the number of politically motivated hate crimes and acts of violence has actually decreased in the past year.
