The Jewish community in the West German city of Frankfurt said it is taking court action against a city council member from an ultra-rightist party over alleged anti-Semitic remarks. Erich Gutjahr, a 78-year-old member of the rightist National Party of Germany, was quoted by the Frankfurt Allgemeine newspaper as saying: "Jews have bought up half the city. The Jews are plundering us again. Something must be done about this." The city prosecutor's office said it is investigating Gutjahr for possible violation of German laws over the statements, and several members of the city council have demanded that he resign.
