The hearing for Holocaust denier and right-wing activist Ursula Haverbeck was held at the Tiergarten district court in Berlin, Tuesday. The trial follows an interview she gave to right-wing video blogger Nikolai Nerling, known as 'Der Volkslehrer' in March 2018, where she allegedly downplayed the Holocaust events.
Haverbeck and Nerling were both present in the courthouse with the latter seen being removed by judicial officers from the building, after having an argument with the press officer before the beginning of the trial.
A motion to hear witnesses by Haverbeck's defence lawyer Wolfram Nahrath postponed the verdict and a second hearing has been scheduled for December 4 this year.
Haverbeck has been repeatedly convicted for demagoguery and sedition since 2004.
She was released from prison on November 5, 2020, on similar charges, after serving her two and a half-year sentence.
