Neo-Nazi Gets 6 Months in Jail for Hate Booklet

January 05, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

The neo-Nazi publisher of a booklet insulting to Jews was sentenced to six months in jail for violating Sweden's hate-speech law.

A court on the island of Gotland said the booklet, "The Jewish Question," constituted "agitation against an ethnic group."

Publisher Fredrik Sandberg, 25, faces up to two years in prison.

The material originally was written by a Nazi party member and published in 1936.
