CST condemns alleged neo-Nazi attack on Spurs fans in France

21 Feb 2013 by CST

CST is deeply concerned by reports that violent thugs made Nazi salutes when attacking fans of Tottenham Hotspur in France last night.

This follows similar violence directed at Spurs fans in Rome in November.

It is clearly unacceptable for football fans to be met with antisemitism and racism when following their team and we expect all the relevant authorities to treat this latest incident with the utmost seriousness.

We welcome the news that arrests have been made by French police following last night's violence and we hope that investigations will continue to see if further arrests can be made.

CST will continue to work with the football authorities and anti-racist groups to reduce the amount of antisemitism and racism affecting football fans and players at all levels of the game. As we wrote after the attack in Rome, it is time for action.

“I’ve now worked with CST on and off for about 11 or 12 years directly, and in that time I’ve seen it develop into a really professional organisation – well-funded, well-organised, delivers on its promises, very challenging, there’s no messing about... But it has my support and it has the Police service of the United Kingdom’s support – great partner, it delivers what it says on the tin and it does its best to keep safe and share intelligence and allow us to move forward together.”
