8/6 Germany: Chinese Tourists Arrested for Nazi Salutes

Edited by walterp on . Posted in News In Brief

German police arrested two Chinese tourists for making illegal “Heil Hitler” salutes in front of the historic Reichstag (Parliament) building that houses the German parliament. Berlin police officers say they detained the two men, aged 36 and 49, after they were seen striking the salute and photographing each other with their mobile phones. They face charges for “using symbols of illegal organizations”, the police said in a statement, and were released after posting bail of 500 euros each. Germany has strict laws against free speech, free expression especially symbols linked to the National Socialists.
