Croatian football fans ´used Nazi symbols´ during matches

5 November 2007 17:56

ZAGREB (AFP) - Croatian police were investigating reports Monday that fans of local football club Hajduk Split sold and wore T-shirts bearing Nazi symbols.

The Hajduk fans were "walking proudly in Split wearing T-shirts reading 'Hajduk Jugend,' a direct allusion to the 'Hitler Jugend'," wrote the Slobodna Dalmacija reported.

The T-shirts, sold on the fans' website www.torcida.org, depict an eagle carrying the Hajduk coat of arms in its claws, which the daily said replaced the swastika in the Nazi version.

"We will check those reports to establish whether the law has been broken," Marina Kraljevic Gudelj, a police spokeswoman in the southern town of Split, told AFP.

A Croatian football association spokesman said the governing body had no knowledge of the case.

Under its Nazi-allied Ustasha regime, hundreds of thousands of Serbs, Jews, anti-fascist Croatians, Roma and others were killed in Croatian concentration camps during World War II.
