Civil rights group says Canada should help Holocaust denier on trial in GermanyNaturally, Canadian Jews are hissing and shrieking that anudder Shoah is on its way if Monika is freed from her dungeon.
OTTAWA -- A civil liberties group is urging the Canadian government to end the "unjust and immoral" imprisonment of Monika Schaefer, a German-Canadian woman on trial in Germany for publishing videos denying the Holocaust.
The Ontario Civil Liberties Association says it's concerned about Canada's apparent unwillingness to come to the aid of Schaefer, who it describes as a Canadian "political prisoner" who was charged with a German criminal law that does not exist in Canada and is contrary to international law.
In a letter signed by executive director Joseph Hickey, the association calls on Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould and Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland to act immediately, starting with appointing a consular observer and direct contact for Schaefer.
"We ask you both to do everything you can to save Monika Schaefer from her ongoing unjust and immoral imprisonment in Germany," the letter says. "Every day that Canada refuses to act or acts ineffectively is a day that Ms. Schaefer spends in a foreign jail. Therefore, we express the required urgency."
The civil liberties association says Germany's law against Holocaust denial is contrary to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, which was ratified by Canada in 1976.
The United Nations Human Rights Committee has interpreted the covenant to be incompatible with laws that penalize the expression of opinions about historical facts, it says.
The civil liberties group says in the letter that the 2016 video was made in Canada and published from Canada.
Here's Monika's crime, singing a song in Canada, which got her arrested over 6 months ago and confined to a German maximum security prison. Youtube has deemed this video to be hazardous to your mental health, so you have to jump thru hoops to view it. They've also removed the comments and the number of hits it has received, which probably means its in the millions:
Germany is so fucked up, they jail Grandmas for asking historical questions about WWII while letting illegal immigrants go free and not do time for violently assaulting and raping a young girl.
