Married Couple Sentenced For Migrant Critical Facebook Group
by Chris Tomlinson
A German couple were taken to court and sentenced after they created a Facebook group that criticised migrants and the government's mass migration policy.
The couple, who live in the German town of Vierkirchen, stood accused of inciting hatred toward migrants via the Facebook group that the pair had created called the "Anti-refugee movement" (AFB). The group is said, by the court, to have been a clear incitement against migrants and as a result both 27-year-old Peter M. and his 26-year-old wife Melanie M. were found guilty of hate speech, Merkur reports.
The statements on the Facebook group did not seem to contain anything overtly nationalistic or Nazi-inspired, but rather expressed deep concern about the situation in Germany relating to mass migration.
