Download PDF for this date

French rightist leader Pierre Poujade was found guilty in Limoges Criminal Court today of incitement to racial hatred in connection with anti-Semitic statements he made in articles in his publication, “French Fraternity.” In his writings, Poujade also slandered the memory of Jewish soldiers who died for France in World War II.

The charges against Poujade had been filed by the MRAP, the Movement against Anti-Semitism and for Peace. The Jewish War Veterans Organization of France was also listed among the plaintiffs. Poujade has not yet been sentenced.
