Prague, Nov 18 (CTK) – The Czech police arrested two men with French documents and a car full of weapons on the Czech-Slovak border in April, server Lidovky.cz has reported, adding that the Czech Republic might have been a state via which weapons were transferred to be used in the terrorist attacks in Paris.

A police patrol stopped the car with weapons near the border crossing in Stary Hrozenkov, east Moravia. They detained two men, both French nationals. In June, the police proposed that criminal charges be filed against the two.

The police then reported the case to the Czech National Contact Point for Terrorism, which falls under the police organised crime squad (UOOZ).

UOOZ spokesman Pavel Hantak has told Lidovky.cz that the suspects were caught transferring devalued expansion weapons bought in Slovakia. Such weapons are supposed to be adjusted for shooting with blank bullets only.

However, automatic rifles that can be easily adjusted to kill are also on sale in Slovakia, the server wrote.
