Pyrotechnics from the fan flew among the tourists in the Old Town Square. Police showed a video

“The man from the Netherlands is now in a police cell and will be subjected to shortened pre-trial proceedings during the day. He faces up to two years in prison for the crime of rioting, “said police spokesman Jan Daněk.

Dozens of Dutch fans headed to restaurants and bars on and around the Old Town Square on Wednesday afternoon.

The video shows that the rocket flew from the stand in the square directly among the tourists standing nearby. According to the spokesperson, the injured tourist was released for home treatment after treatment.

Due to Thursday’s football match, which the police assessed as high-risk, police officers from the South Moravian, Plzeň and Ústí regions will also supervise security in the metropolis.

In particular, law enforcement units from these regions will strengthen their colleagues from Prague. According to the police, football hooligans should also arrive in Prague to take part in the violence in recent protests against coronavirus restrictions in Rotterdam.
