The eight men were sentenced by a Gothenburg district court to between three and nine months in prison for violent rioting back in September.
The longest sentence was handed to a 19-year-old who, according to the prosecution threw stones at the police with the help of a sling. He was also convicted of attempted violent attack on a police officer and of breaking the law against covering up your face in public spaces.
Police investigations into suspected crimes carried out by the neo-Nazi demonstrators are still ongoing.
On Friday, 23 supporters of the neo-Nazi Nordic Resistance Movement, who had been suspected of violent rioting were however released for insufficient evidence. But another 8 to 10 individuals are still under investigatation for violent rioting, and another 10 to 15 neo-Nazis are suspected of not following police orders.
There are also additional investigations concerning incitement of racial hatred and crimes against public order.
