Belgian Court Sentences Woman for Calling Official ‘dirty Jew’

Download PDF for this date

A Brussels court fined a woman yesterday and gave her a suspended 15-day prison sentence for calling her superior in the Civil Service, “a dirty Jew. ” The court ruled that the term had been intended as a derogation by the woman and that it had taken into account the dangerous and warped mentality of the woman.
