Supreme State Attorney appeals ruling clearing publishers of Hitler speeches

The Supreme State Attorney Pavel Zeman has appealed the ruling of a Brno court that cleared the publishers of Adolf Hitler’s speeches free of charges of propagating Nazism. The regional court in Brno in January upheld an earlier verdict that found no evidence that the collection of Hitler’s speeches promoted the Nazi ideology. The book, which was released in 2012, consists of 18 addresses delivered by the Nazi dictator between 1939 and 1942. An editor and two co-owners of a Brno-based publishing house, Guidemedia, faced up to ten years in jail on charges of propagating Nazism. The case will now be reviewed by the Supreme Court.
