Holocaust Denier's Lawyer Gets Prison
« on: January 15, 2008, 07:51:35 AM »
Associated Press `“ January 14, 2008

A former lawyer for a well-known Holocaust denier was convicted of incitement in Germany on Monday for denying the genocide herself and sentenced to 3 1/2 years in prison.

Sylvia Stolz, who represented Holocaust denier Ernst Zundel at his trial, also was banned from practicing law for five years.

During Zundel's trial, Stolz repeatedly disputed the Nazis' mass murder of Jews, called for hatred of the Jewish population and ended a legal document with the words "Heil Hitler."

Zundel's first trial collapsed after Stolz was banned from the proceedings on the grounds she was trying to sabotage them.

Zundel's second trial at Mannheim state court ended in February 2007 with his conviction for incitement for denying the Holocaust `” a crime in Germany.

The 67-year-old Zundel, who was deported from Canada in 2005 and also once lived in Tennessee, was sentenced to the maximum five years in prison.

In sentencing Stolz, Judge Rolf Glenz said she used Zundel's trial in order to deny the Holocaust and to spread revisionist ideas.

"Stolz has a basic reflex to make far-right statements," he said.

Stolz, who called the Holocaust "the biggest lie in world history," also was convicted of disparaging the country and its symbols and insulting the court.

Time was that a lawyer was able to plead his/her client's case without interference or being accused of the same crime as the defendant. Then came the Parteiengerichte ("Party Courts") of the Nazionale Sozialistische Deutsche Arbeiter Partei, and the administration of Talmudic Justice (?) has never looked back.

As you say, charging the defense lawyer with the same crime, so that no one will defend the accused, was a good old National Socialist tactic.  But it came in earlier - I think the curtain raiser for this was the French Revolutionary's trial of Louis XVI.  His lawyer, Malsherbes, was executed after him.  Malsherbes knew, when he took the case, that Robespierre might do this.  But he thought that the principle of justice was very important.
