Bruno Gollnisch on trial for 'Holocaust denial'

Tuesday, November 07, 2006

The deputy leader of France’s National Front (FN) party, Bruno Gollnisch, went on trial Tuesday for "disputing crimes against humanity" over comments he made two years ago on the Holocaust. Gollnisch, 56, who is a member of the European parliament, faces a possible year in jail if he is found guilty after two days of hearings. In October 2004 Gollnisch said at a press conference that he did not "question the deportations (nor) the hundreds of thousands, the millions of dead ... As for the way they died, there has to be debate." He went on: "I do not deny the existence of deadly gas chambers. But I am not a specialist on this, and I think we should leave historians to discuss it. And this discussion should be free."
