Court in Germany sends operator of neo-Nazi radio to prison
Yesterday in Germany a state-level court in Berlin sent the operator of a German neo-Nazi internet radio station to prison for two years and nine months. The radio station broadcast hateful slogans on the web against foreigners and Jews, as well as instructions on how to produce bombs. DPA reports judges sentenced the 24–year-old man for inciting hatred against other nationalities and belonging to a criminal group.
Six of the radio operators’ supporters also received verdicts ranging from one year to two years and five months behind bars. Those sentenced include a 31-year-old woman who worked for the Lower Saxony Office for the Protection of the Constitution. In her case the court gave consideration to the fact that the institution where she worked learned of the extremist internet radio station rather quickly. DPA did not report whether the verdicts have taken effect yet or not.
