Paris court upholds LePen Holocaust decision | World | Jewish Journal

A Paris court upheld an earlier decision condemning extreme-right leader Jean-Marie Le Pen for “contesting” the Holocaust.

On Thursday a Paris appeals court upheld a 2008 decision, and said Le Pen was guilty of “the contestation of crimes against humanity.”

Le Pen was fined around 13,000 dollars and slapped with a three-month suspended jail sentence for saying in 2005 that, “in France at least, the German Occupation wasn’t particularly inhumane, even if there were some excesses—inevitable in a country of 550,000 square kilometers.”
