A police officer here was charged with libel today and suspended from the police force for shouting insults at Jews.

Josef Holzmann was accused of having shouted in a bar: “You filthy Jews. They forgot to gas you, but the Adenauer regime will not last much longer and your time will come too.” A police disciplinary board is expected to review the case.
