Update on Germar Rudolph
Neo-Nazi accused of 'racial hatred' goes on the run

By Jessica Berry and Chris Hastings
Special to the Electric Telegraph 01.16.00

GERMANY has issued an international arrest warrant for a Holocaust
revisionist who fled to Britain to escape a prison sentence for inciting
racial hatred.

Police here have joined the hunt for Germar Rudolf, who has been on the run
from his home in Stuttgart since 1995. If he is arrested on British soil, he
faces extradition or deportation. One source close to the case said:
"Concern about this man's presence in Britain has been raised at the very
highest level. The Home Secretary is likely to want to do all he can to help
the Germans bring this man to justice."

The warrant was issued three months after Rudolf was traced to the south
coast by The Telegraph. He has not been seen at his home for some time and
police have not ruled out the possibility that he may have left the country.

An internet site which he runs from a PO box address in Hastings was still
being updated last week. It carried the message: "Germar Rudolf is alive and
still free." The site also carries an appeal for funds and volunteers to
help with the revisionist cause.

Rudolf, a former German air force pilot, was sentenced to 14 months in
prison in 1995 for three counts of inciting racial hatred. He was found
guilty of breaching Germany's Holocaust denial legislation after he produced
a study claiming that Jews did not die in gas chambers at Auschwitz.

Rudolf escaped to Spain were he stayed with a former Nazi general who had
been a close friend of Adolf Hitler. But in 1996, fearing that the German
authorities were catching up with him, he moved to England.

David Irving, the Right-wing historian who is currently involved in a High
Court libel action against Prof Deborah Lipstadt, one of his fiercest
critics, was one of the first people Rudolf contacted when he arrived in
Britain and both men have been supportive of each other.

Richard Green, a forensic chemist, has made it his business to expose
Rudolf.  Cited here are Green's home page and two of his articles exposing
the junk science that form the basis for Rudolf's published reports.
