All power to the imagination?
When extensive strikes and workers’ and students’ riots took place in France at 1968, one of the slogans back then was “All power to the imagination”. Czech police and courts now have their own interpetation. They assert their authority through fostering their own imagination.
When police wanted the arrest warrant on me, their claimed reasons for that were speculative statements and bunch of random bullshit. Obviously, it was enough for getting the warrant. It is even scary, how powerful their imagination can be.
It was written in certain documents: „Lukáš B. doesn’t have any permanent residence in Czech republic. Based on current investigation it was found out, that in time of October 2015 till December 2015 he was moving on the territory of Slovakian republic in Žilina town surroundings. Then, at April/May he was moving in Slovenia in Ljubljana city surroundings.
From that place he moved most probably to Holland, accompanied by (person’s name). Then, it was found out, that at the beginning of summer (June 2016) Lukáš Borl took part in secret meeting of militant animal right defenders Animal liberation front (ALF), which took place at France, in Marseille sity surroundings, under name RAT ATTACK. From the uncovered communication it is clear, that že Lukáš B. plans to travel alongside the coast of Italy, France to the border of Belgium and Netherlands, where he is supposed to have a job – photographing for magazine about migration. Special sings of searched person: brown hair, beard, 8-10 dreadlocks on the head, 15-20 cm long.“
What kind of investigation could lead to writing such a nonsense? In all this construction there is only one true statement – at that time I truly didn’t have a permanent residence in Czech republic. What kind of communication police have “uncovered”, if they deduce absolutely false statements? Apparently, all the investigation and “uncovered” communication took place only in police officers’ heads. Just casual excogitation, as we can call it. Of course, police will think of a better name for what they do, simply because to admit that their authority leans on excogitation and investigation inability, is not tactical at all.
Notes of Contra Info:
On the 28th of April 2015 he was one of the many anarchists who were arrested in the police Operation Fenix. He was released after two days of arrest but other three anarchists stayed in custody since that (after a year there is still one commrade waiting for the court in custody prison).
In the next months Lukáš was under surveillance of the secret police. Under pressure of worries he could also end up in prison for his anarchistic attitude and activities, he decided to go underground. Now the place of his stay is unknown. But he still publishes texts in which he underlines his will to stay part of the anarchistic movement and its activities.
September 4th, 2016, Lukáš Borl was arrested by the police in Most and then taken to the remand prison in Litoměřice. They accuse Lukáš for the foundation, supporting and promoting a movement aimed at suppressing human rights and freedoms.
The comrade was released on bail on 13. 4. 2017. That means that he will wait for the court outside of the prison walls.
