Trial of Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff, Day 3

(Originally published on Gates of Vienna. Reprinted with permission.)

VERDICT: GUILTY ON ONE COUNT, NOT GUILTY ON THE OTHER.

LIVE BLOGGING HAS CONCLUDED.

ESW Copenhagen Nov. 2010

Today was the third and final day of the “hate speech” trial against Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff. Below is the brief live-blog for the occasion.

To recapitulate: the charges against Elisabeth were “incitement to hatred” and “denigration of religious beliefs of a legally recognized religion” for giving informational seminars on Islam.

See my previous post for yesterday’s RT interview with Elisabeth.


Final report, 5:43am EST:

On the count of “incitement to hatred”: Not guilty.

On the count of “denigration of religious beliefs of a legally recognized religion”: Guilty.

The judgment against the defendant is a €480 fine.

The judge second-guessed the Koran by saying Aisha was 18. She evidently noted that Aisha was 18 years old when Mohammed died, which is factual. The implication is that because he did not divorce her after she became above legal age, he was not a pedophile.

She says it’s not pedophilia, because Mohammed had no exclusive desire for underage girls; he wanted any female he could get his hands on.

By implication, the child marriages so prevalent in hardcore Islamic countries cannot be legally categorized as “pedophilia” either.

Elisabeth said: “This is a sad day for my daughter and all girls.”

Convicted for speaking out against sex with minors. How’s that?

Because she insisted that sex with minors is pedophilia, she is guilty of denigrating religious teachings. Well, that tells us all we need to know about Islam, doesn’t it?

(Many thanks to Henrik and Kitman for help with the above analysis.)

First report, 5:17am EST:

Judge:   The integration of Muslims is surely a question of particular public interest — you are allowed to be critical — but not incitement of hatred
    [judge states the permitted utterances]
    The language used in he seminars were not inciting hatred, but the utterances regarding Muhammad and paedophilia were punishable.
    “Paedophilia” is factually incorrect, since paedophilia is a sexual preference which solely or mainly is directed towards children. This does not apply to Mohammad. He was still married to Aisha when she was 18.
    Did you understand the sentence?
    [discontent in court]

(Thanks to Kitman for the translation)

It’s not clear — there may have been a “guilty” verdict at this point, and the trial may be over. Stand by.
