IN AN EMAIL FROM DAMIEN VIGUIER, ROBERT FAURISSON'S BARRISTER, to certain interested parties, it was learned that on September 27th, the 17th chamber of the Paris correctional court ruled that Professor Faurisson was guilty of one charge out of the three that were prosecuted against him on June 21.

All charges stemmed from the talk Faurisson gave in Tehran in 2006 titled “The Victories of Revisionism” and his published paper of that name. [See also Faurisson's recent follow-up at jan27.org] The lawsuit was brought, as usual, by the Jewish LICRA [International League against Racism and Anti-Semitism], who were granted €3,000 in damages and €2,000 in legal costs. Adding that to the fine of €4,000, the total judgment amounts to €9,000.
