Jail terms for German neo-Nazi radio station
A court in Germany on Monday jailed nine men for operating and presenting a neo-Nazi Internet radio station and gave nine others suspended sentences.
The 18 defendants aged between 20 and 37 from around Germany were found guilty of disseminating far-right ideology, glorifying the Nazis and spreading racist and anti-Semitic propaganda.
Nine of them were given sentences ranging from one year and nine months to three years and three months, a spokesman for the court in Koblenz, western Germany, told AFP.
The radio station, Widerstandradio (Radio Resistance), operated from July 2009 until authorities closed it down in November 2010.
"The entire radio station, as well as contributions to (online) forums, were recognisably far-right and were aimed at spreading National Socialist ideology," prosecutors said in their January indictment.
