Zundel Charged
With Hate Crime
The Globe and Mail
BERLIN (AP) -- German prosecutors said Tuesday that they have charged far-rightist Ernst Zundel with incitement to racial hatred.
Mr. Zundel, who was extradited from Canada earlier this year, is accused of spreading anti-Semitism and denying the Holocaust, partly in texts distributed via the Internet, prosecutors in the southwestern city of Mannheim said.
Mr. Zundel is "known internationally as a leader of the right-wing scene," the prosecutors said in a statement listing 14 cases of alleged incitement to racial hatred.
He was arrested in March on his arrival in Germany after losing a long legal battle to head off his extradition. He had been detained in Toronto since 2003 under Canadian anti-terrorism laws. Both Canadian and U.S. authorities rejected his applications for citizenship.
