The Australian reports that my friend Fredrick Toben was ready to go to jail yesterday as he faced a hearing on what punishment he should face for breaching a court order barring him from publishing material denying the Holocaust.
It is reported that he has vowed to go to jail rather than pay any fine imposed on him. Justice Bruce Lander has reserved his decision on what specific penalty he should impose.
The case against Toben was brought by Jeremy Jones, the former president of the Executive Council of Australian Jewry. There's a surprise for you.
Here is a link to a brief interview with Toben on YouTube.
