Hat tip to Nahida Izzat, who comments, “When thoughts are criminalised and when people are thrown in prison for their ideas, we know we live in the DARKEST ages of humanity.”
But maybe not all is dark. According to a report here, Mahler is now out of prison and “on the run.”
Horst Mahler’s checkered career has taken another sharp turn. The 81-year-old neo-Nazi and Holocaust-denier has declared that he is on the run from the judiciary and is now thought to have fled the country.
In a video released on YouTube (and since removed) by the far-right affiliated network “Nordland TV,” the lawyer said he would not be following an order to serve his latest prison sentence, and would instead “ask for asylum in a sovereign state that is ready to accept people.”
He called the charges against him “political persecution without legal basis,” and accused Munich’s state prosecutor Manfred Nötzel of attempting to murder him in prison. An associate of Mahler’s told public broadcaster ARD that he was no longer in the country.
