The first Holocaust denial sentence in Hungary has been handed down

Wednesday, June 13, 2012

First, I thought the news was a hoax, or someone made fun out of a court ruling. But it turned out to be true. Even the globalist media caught off guard by the Pest Central District Court ruling in the first Holocaust denial case -- that could be the reason, why they reported it one day late.

The Pest Central District Court sentenced György N. to 1 year and 6 months suspended jail term and ordered his probation supervision for publicly denying the Holocaust during a counter demonstration on October 23, 2011. By protesting against a liberal gathering, György N. held up a sign with a Hebrew message “Holocaust didn't happen”.

As an extra punishment, the court ordered György N. to visit Budapest Páva street Holocaust Memorial Center, at least three times and summarize his thoughts and experiences on the visits in an essay. The ruling offers a second option to the convict; he might chose to make a pilgrimage to the Auschwitz memorial in Poland, or the Yad Vashem Memorial in Jerusalem, at least ones; in this case, he is not required to visit the Budapest Páva street Holocaust Memorial Center at all, but he is still expected to summerize his thoughts and experiences on the visits in an article.

Some argues that imposing such extra punishment is illegal. This is reminiscent of for instance, giving someone a jail sentence, and as an extra punishment ordering him to do 20 push-ups each day.

The ruling is not final as the accused appealed the decision.
