GERMANY: JOURNALIST SENTENCED TO SIX MONTHS JAIL FOR PUBLISHING HISTORIC PHOTO.
GERMANY – A district court in Munich early yesterday sentenced German journalist Michael Stürzenberger to six months in jail and an additional 100 hours of charitable work for publishing this photo in his Facebook timeline.
It shows Adolf Hitler and Amin al-Husseini, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, shaking hands in 1941 in Berlin.
Along with the photo, he had written a review of an article in the Süddeutsche Zeitung, ‘Hakenkreuz und Halbmond’ (“Swastika and Crescent Moon”) about the National Socialists’ admiration for Islam, and mentioned his own review of that Süddeutsche article in PI-News.
For this post, in particular the photo, the court found Stürzenberger guilty of “disseminating propaganda of anti-constitutional organizations”.
Prosecution had accused Stürzenberger of “inciting hatred towards Islam” and “denigrating Islam” by publishing the photo. A superficial onlooker, prosecution argued, could not know that this black and white photo in Stürzenberger’s timeline was a historical document.
According to PI-News, the sentence might be given as a suspended sentence for three and a half years.
And then of course there’s this…..
A German-Turkish writer who is a known critic of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has been arrested in Spain.
Dogan Akhanli, who has written extensively on human rights in Turkey, was detained at the request of Turkish authorities in the city of Granada.
German Green MP Volker Beck said the move was politically motivated and that he had requested that Mr Akhanli should not be extradited to Turkey.
It is unclear on what grounds the arrest warrant was issued.
The move, Mr Beck said, showed that President Erdogan was prepared to “extend his power beyond his country’s borders” to “intimidate and pursue [his critics] around the world”.
Since a failed coup in July last year, tens of thousands of people have been arrested in Turkey – including officials, academics and journalists. Opposition media outlets have been closed down.
Mr Akhanli, 60, has written about the killing in 2007 of Turkish-Armenian journalist Hrant Dink and the 1915 killing of Armenians by Ottoman Turks, which was labelled as genocide by the German parliament last year.
His lawyer, Ilias Uyar, told Der Spiegel magazine that it was “unbelievable that Turkey is now simply chasing critical minds abroad”.
In February Deniz Yucel, a German-Turkish journalist who works for Germany’s Die Welt newspaper, was detained in Turkey over allegations of producing terrorist propaganda. He remains in police custody.
German-Turkish relations dipped to a new low on Friday when Germany accused Mr Erdogan of interference after he urged Turkish voters in Germany not to vote for the country’s main parties.
Relations soured in March after Mr Erdogan accused German officials of acting like Nazis following Germany’s cancellation of rallies among ethnic Turks ahead of a referendum on greater powers for the Turkish president.
Despite these tensions, the two countries remain major trade partners and allies in Nato.
