PRAGUE — Former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke was detained by police in the Czech Republic on Friday on suspicion of denying the Holocaust.

Police spokesman Jan Mikulovsky said the action was taken because Duke does that in his book "My Awakening," which is punishable by up to three years in Czech prisons.

Duke traveled to the republic to promote the book's Czech translation of the book at the invitation of neo-Nazis.

Mikulovsky declined to give any further details, citing an ongoing investigation.

Prague's Charles University also banned a Duke lecture scheduled there Friday for students taking a course on extremism.

Duke, a resident of Louisiana and a former Republican state legislator there, also was to have given lectures over the weekend in Prague and the country's second-largest city, Brno.

The KKK is a white supremacist group in the U.S. famous for its oppression of blacks, Jews and other minorities.

That's the way we europeans cope with them.

Too bad Ahmadinejad didn't come to Czech Republic so far...would have been nice to see him in prison for at least 3 years =)

Meh, it isn't what you can call ''world news'', nor ''Interesting news''.

But, that guy, deserves to go to prison at least for an couple of years.

David Irving!


Arrest and imprisonment in Austria

On 11 November 2005, the Austrian police in the southern state of Styria, acting under a 1989 warrant, arrested Irving. Four days later, he was charged by state prosecutors with the speech crime of "trivialising the Holocaust". His application for bail was denied on the grounds that he would flee or repeat the offence. He remained in jail awaiting trial. On 20 February 2006 Irving pleaded guilty to the charge of "trivialising, grossly playing down and denying the Holocaust".

And it could have been much more.

Austria ->..............up to twenty years in prison(Hitlers homecountry)
Belgium->.............up to one year
Czech Republic->.up to three years(spoken) and up to eight years if in media(books, radio,...)
France ->.............up to five years
Germany->...........up to five years
Liechtenstein->.....up to two years
Luxembourg->......up to six months
Poland->...............up to three years
Portugal->............up to two years
Romania->...........up to five years
Spain->................up to two years
Switzerland->.......up to three years

Keep them on your side of the Atlantic, we don't want them.
