http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2009/04/16/2544811.htm?section=australia Holocaust denier guilty of contempt Posted April 16, 2009 15:17:00 Updated April 16, 2009 15:55:00 Frederick Toben: 'prepared for sacrifices' (ABC News) A federal court has ruled that a revisionist historian breached previous court orders by publishing offensive material about Jews and the Holocaust on a website. The former president of the Executive Council of Australian Jewry, Jeremy Jones, launched a civil action against Frederick Toben after he published claims on the Adelaide Institute's website that the holocaust never happened. The material also implied that Jewish people who challenged Holocaust deniers were of limited intelligence. Justice Lander today has found Toben guilty of wilful contempt of court on 24 out of 28 possible counts. The court will decide his penalty at a further hearing this month. Dr Toben says he does not regret his actions. "If you believe in something and you want to have that freedom to express your opinions then you should be prepared for sacrifices," he said.
