Former far-right man lends Pegida support
Former far-right Austrian politician Ewald Stadler has voiced his support for Germany's "anti-Islamization" movement Pegida, and has said he would be prepared to offer legal advice to Pegida members in Germany and Austria, who are afraid of being criminalized.
Stadler, who studied law and resigned from the Freedom Party (FPÖ) in 2007, was found guilty in June of attempting to blackmail FPÖ leader Heinz-Christian Strache.
Strache has also spoken in support of Pegida, but Stadler told a gathering of journalists in Vienna that the FPÖ leader was, in his opinion, "one of the most stupid politicians in this country".
