Court to reopen case of alleged Holocaust challenger

Prague, Oct 21 (CTK) - The case of Czech-Canadian Vladimir Stwora, who was charged with challenging the Holocaust and acquitted of the charges in December 2009, was returned to a district court for reappraisal, the court'd spokesman Tomas Jurecek told CTK yesterday.

The new proceedings is to start on November 1, he said.

Stwora placed a Czech translation of an article headlined "Holocaust and its Four-Million Variant" on his website in July 2007.

The state attorney says the text questions the Nazi genocide of Jews during World War Two in terms of the number of victims and the existence of extermination camps and gas chambers.

The attorney, who charged Stwora with support and promotion of movements aimed to suppress human rights and freedoms, appealed the original verdict that acquitted him on the spot.

Stwora previously pleaded not guilty and said he considers the accusations absurd.

He said he published the article in order to provoke a discussion about the issue. He added that the article does not challenge the Holocaust but only asks questions and points to discrepancies even among official sources.

Prague - A Czech court today again acquitted Czech-Canadian Vladimir Stwora, who posted a controversial article on the Holocaust on his website, of charges of support and promotion of movements aimed at suppressing human rights and freedoms.

The court acquitted Stwora of the charges last December but an appeals court returned the case for reappraisal.

The verdict has not yet taken effect.

Originally, a court imposed a 10-month suspended sentence with a two-year probation on Stwora who appealed the decision.

Stwora posted a Czech translation of an article headlined "Holocaust and its Four-Million Variant" on his website in July 2007.

The prosecutor says the text questions the Nazi genocide of Jews during World War Two in terms of the number of victims and the existence of extermination camps and gas chambers.

According to the prosecution, Stwora wanted to challenge the Holocaust.

Stwora previously pleaded not guilty and said he considers the accusations absurd.

He said he published the article in order to provoke a discussion about the issue. He added that the article does not challenge the Holocaust but only asks questions and points to discrepancies even among official sources.

Stwora also pointed out that he was neither the author nor the translator of the article. Moreover, he published the text in Canada on a website registered in the United States where issuing such texts cannot be considered a crime.
