PRAGUE (AFP) A former US Ku Klux Klan chief arrested here on a speaking tour was freed during the night but will be forced to leave the country later Saturday, Czech police said.

David Duke, the former Grand Wizard of the Louisiana-founded Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, arrived in Prague on Friday at the invitation of a local far-right group, Narodni Odpor (National Resistance).

He was arrested Friday afternoon in the Black Eagle restaurant in Prague's old town and questioned for several hours on suspicion of promoting movements seeking the suppression of human rights, police said.

The Ku Klux Klan is notorious the world over for terrorizing black Americans through lynchings, cross burnings and other hate crimes.

I was hoping he would get a taste of what he espouses. Guess the Czech's are more liberal than his own beliefs.

6. Apparently he was promoting a book he translated to czech
In a country where his book is illegal!

What the hell was this guy thinking? unfortunately for him the czech republic doesn't implore "foreign law" and therefore he is not protected by the US constitution.

The only bad thing about all of this is his book might get more publication than it otherwise would have!
