Court Rejects Neo-nazi’s Appeal

Neo-Nazi activist Karl-Heinz Hoffmann lost his appeal against a nine-and-a-half-year jail sentence Saturday.

The penalty was upheld by a federal court in Karlsruhe, a city in the southwestern part of the Federal Republic.

Hoffmann, leader of a paramilitary organization whose members trained at Palestine Liberation Organization bases in Lebanon, was convicted on June 30, 1986.

A Nuremberg court found him guilty of forging documents, illegally possessing arms and circulating Nazi and anti-Semitic propaganda.

The cooperation between Hoffmann and the PLO was the most concrete evidence yet of contacts between neo-Nazi groups and Palestinian terrorists. The PLO has never admitted the contacts, although they have been confirmed by the West German courts.
