BERLIN — A German court fined an ultraconservative British bishop $2,400 for denying the Holocaust in a television interview.
German news agency dpa reported that an administrative court in Regensburg convicted Richard Williamson of incitement and levied the fine on Wednesday.
The case was retried after an earlier conviction of Williamson was overturned on procedural grounds.
Williamson, 72, told a Swedish TV station in 2008 that he did not believe Jews were killed in gas chambers during World War II.
Holocaust denial is a crime in Germany.
Williamson didn’t attend Wednesday’s court proceedings.
