France Opens Judicial Inquiry
into Holocaust Doubter

PARIS (Reuters) - French prosecutors said Monday they were opening a judicial investigation into comments by a leading far-right politician who questioned whether the Nazis used gas chambers in the Holocaust.

Justice Minister Dominique Perben called for the inquiry after Bruno Gollnisch, a professor of Japanese at the University of Lyon, questioned how the gas chambers were used in the wartime slaughter of Jews and how many Jews were killed.

Prosecutors in the southern city of Lyon said the investigation would focus on "denying crimes against humanity." France anti-racism laws have made denying the Holocaust a crime, punishable by fines and even prison.

Prosecutors last month had already opened a preliminary investigation into the comments by Gollnisch, a European deputy [Member of the EU-Parliament] who is also the number two man in the National Front party of extreme-right leader Jean-Marie Le Pen.

Gollnisch told a news conference last month he recognized gas chambers had existed but said he thought historians still had to decide whether they were actually used to kill Jews.

He called for an open debate about whether the total number of Jews killed in the Holocaust was actually 6 million as stated.

The CRIF umbrella group of French Jewish organizations has publicly condemned Gollnisch's comments, and European Parliament head Josep Borrell said the European assembly would not tolerate such a statement.

The Lyons Appeal Court has confirmed conviction of a member of the European Parliament, Bruno Gollnisch, for questioning the Holocaust.

Gollnisch has questioned the gas-chambers run by Nazi Germany, where thousands of Jews were allegedly murdered.

Although Gollnisch has political immunity because he is an EP member, the EP has revoked his immunity under pressure fromthe Zionist lobby paving the way for his trial at the French court.

The preliminary court started trial of Gollnisch back in May 23, 2006.
