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.
