Will Bishop Williamson be prosecuted?- update


The Prosecutor’s Office in Regensburg is still waiting for statements from two journalists of Swedish Television, said the Chief Prosecutor Guenther Ruckdäschel on Tuesday tp Bayerischer Rundfunk. Ruckdäschel said that so far there has been no response from Sweden to the letters containing their questions.

Williamson denied in an interview the true proportions the Holocaust and at the same time the existence of Nazi gas chambers. Also the British Bishop of the ultra-conservative SSPX claimed not six million Jews murdered by the Nazis, but between 200,000 and 300.000.

The Regensburg investigators now want to know from the TV journalist and cameraman whether Williamson actually had insisted that the interview should only be broadcast in Sweden. Williamson denies intentionally breaking German law.

His lawyer explained that Williamson believed that the interview given at the beginning of November in Zaitzkofen near Regensburg would be broadcast in Sweden. There is the denial of the Holocaust is not punishable. The Regensburg Prosecutor has been investigating Williamson of promoting racial hatred since January.
