Nazi saluting police brutality footage shows Belgian officers laughing as they pinned down prisoner

Jozef Chovanec died in the wake of his arrest at Charleroi airport in early 2018. Footage shows him banging his head against a wall while officers pin him down.

Belgium was in shock today after footage emerged of a man being pinned down by police shortly before he died – while officers laughed and one of them gave a Nazi salute.

The footage has sparked comparisons with the death of George Floyd in the US.

Chovanec was taken off a plane in Charleroi after refusing to show a ticket as he boarded, and taken to a holding cell where the footage shows him banging his head against the wall until his face bleeds heavily.

One policeman sat on his chest for 16 minutes while a laughing female officer performed the ‘Hitler greeting‘, before Chovanec died in hospital the next day.

What do you think of the police officer doing a Nazi salute as a man dies?

Daily De Standaard in Belgium reports today that the nazi-saluting officer (an inspector, not a rank-and-file cop) will at last be transfered from working with detainees to a desk job.
