The man did not wait for the judge to finish justifying the verdict and left the courtroom together with his supporters.
The decision is not final. The public prosecutor kept the deadline for a possible appeal. The man will have to comment later.
“Even democracy has its constitutional limits,” declared Svrček. According to him, the statements about nuclear attacks exceeded these limits. According to him, the court was considering whether Vrabel in his statements did not cross a line that could no longer be crossed by chance. But he came to the conclusion that the man must have been aware of the fears he could cause with his claims.
According to state representative Katarína Kandová, last November in a video that was seen by thousands of people on YouTube and Facebook, Vrabel stated that the Czech government wants to attack the Russian Federation with nuclear warheads. According to Vrabel, the Russian side will retaliate and send nuclear weapons to the Czech Republic. According to the plaintiff, the statements could cause concern among the public about a possible war conflict between the Czech Republic and Russia.

Vrabel: Trying to silence the opposition
Vrabel denied the allegations in court. He stated that he felt absolutely innocent. He considers the prosecution to be political, an attempt to silence the opposition.
The regional court in České Budějovice declared bankruptcy on Vrabel’s property in February. Already in January, he canceled Vrabel’s debt relief. Vrabel also described this trial as a political trial. He owes 2.7 million crowns. In 17 months of debt relief, he repaid CZK 14,500, i.e. 0.5 percent of the amount owed. In the discharge of debt, he must repay 30 percent of the debt.
Last year, on November 17, Vrabel organized a march to the Czech Television (ČT) building in Prague on the Kavčí hory, demanding that he be able to make a speech on television. The TV has already rejected it. At the demonstration, in addition to criticism of the content of the ČT news, there was also criticism of the government.
Vrabel has organized anti-government protests before, at the demonstration on October 28, according to police estimates, several tens of thousands of people gathered. Vrabel’s lawyer Radek Suchý has already stated that Vrabel never used any of the money sent for the demonstrations for himself.
