Groups of far-right extremists wearing green T-shirts with the logo of Marian Kotleba’s People’s Party Our Slovakia (ĽSNS) will not be allowed to patrol on trains. This stems from the new rules for transport adopted by the state-run passenger carrier Železničná Spoločnosť Slovensko (ZSSK), the website reported.

The new rules ban any form of business-making, sales, promotion, surveys and data collection in trains without ZSSK’s permission. This includes political campaigning or support of political programmes or mottos, even if passengers have a valid train ticket.
