British Bishop Fined for Denying Holocaust in TV Interview





An ultraconservative British bishop was fined $16,822 in Germany for denying the Holocaust in an interview with Swedish television, his lawyer said Tuesday.

A court in the Bavarian city of Regensburg issued the fine against Richard Williamson for incitement in connection with his Holocaust denial, Williamson's lawyer Matthias Lossmann said.

An order of punishment is a German legal tool that involves no trial but is equivalent to a conviction if accepted by the defendant. If the defendant objects, it goes to trial.
