Holocaust denier jailed for five years in AustriaBreaking News
While living in Spain from the early 1990s to evade a previous Austrian prison sentence, the neo-Nazi had continued to publish National Socialist ideology in a magazine and other mediums.
"He is one of the ideological leaders of the neo-Nazi scene," prosecutor Stefan Apostol said Friday, alleging that Honsik had also passed out his publications at schools.
Both the prosecution and the defendant plan to appeal the verdict and sentence, Austrian press agency APA reported.
The 67-year-old defendant said he rejected "the doctrine which demonizes National Socialism," but claimed he was not a National Socialist himself.
Honsik, who wrote the book “Acquittal for Hitler?” in 1988, defended himself by arguing that he did not deny the existence of all the gas chambers in Nazi concentration camps.
