Czech ‘expert witness’ system under scrutiny over intimidation by extremists | Czech Position

Czech judicial expert on extremism Michal Mazel decided to quit his role earlier this month after a lawyer for an activist with the far-right Workers’ Party for Social Justice (DSSS) challenged his neutrality, on the grounds of Mazel’s ‘Jewish origins.’ The incident has triggered a debate on how to reform the institution of judicial experts in order to protect them from intimidation.

Mazel is proposing that academic institutions or the Czech Police’s Institute of Criminology be accredited to provide legal expertise in the field of extremism — apart from him, there are now only four other judicial experts on the subject in the Czech Republic.
