Greece unveils plans to toughen anti-racism laws


Draft legislation by Justice Party provides for prison terms, large fines for those who deny Holocaust

Times of Israel

The Greek government on Friday unveiled plans to toughen laws against racism and prohibit “malevolent” denial of the Holocaust, amid an increase in racist violence.

The draft legislation presented by the Justice Ministry provides for maximum three-year prison terms, and fines up to 20,000 euros ($27,000), for people found guilty of inciting racist crimes.

Similar penalties would apply to those convicted of denying the significance of genocides, crimes against humanity and war crimes — in a way that could incite violence, hatred, or either threaten or insult ethnic, racial or religious groups.

The draft legislation will be forwarded to Parliament for debate.

Greece has seen a rise in violence targeting Asian and African immigrants since its financial crisis erupted in 2009.

    The mother of all representative governments destroyed. Destroyed by Zionist bankers that are now making thoughts and speech a punishable crime. Have we not seen this before? Coming to America soon? “The wealthy jews control the world. In their hands lies the fate of governments and nations. They set governments, one against the other, and by their decree governments make peace ( or war). When the wealthy jews play, the nations and rulers dance. One way or the other, they (the jews) get rich.” Theodore Herzl founder of Zionism in ” Deutche Zeitung”

    So much for all the ‘progress’ Golden Dawn was making. They managed to get themselves and their fellow Greeks tagged bagged & gagged all in short order. Now the jew fanatics tighten the noose even more. Smooth move guys! No thanks to your stupidity in bashing Muslims & Arabs you made the Fools Gallery and the jew fanatic supremacist freaks couldn’t be happier.
