In Germany, a man was sentenced to five months in prison for a Nazi salute

A German court sentenced a 34-year-old man to five months in prison for demonstrating a banned Nazi greeting during a protest on August 27. This is reported by The Local .

Thousands of demonstrators took to the streets of Chemnitz on the appeal of the right party “Alternative for Germany” and the Islamophobic movement “Pegida” after information about the murder of a German by two migrants.

The Chemnitz Court decided to award a real term, since the accused had a number of previous sentences, including for the attack. Earlier in Scotland, a man who took a video with a “nosing” dog was fined .

The police are investigating cases involving incidents and last week said that they identified six people who used the Nazi salute.

Swastika and other Nazi symbols are prohibited in Germany. Violators of the law face a fine or a term of imprisonment of up to three years
