Holocaust-denying bishop threatened with expulsion

A Catholic bishop who denied the Holocaust has been threatened with expulsion from his traditionalist order for hiring a lawyer linked to the neo-Nazi movement.

 

The Society of St. Pius X said Monday it ordered Bishop Richard Williamson to fire the lawyer, who will represent him in a November 9 appeal of an incitement conviction in Germany. The court told the DAPD news agency that Williamson would be represented by Wolfram Nahrath, who has defended neo-Nazis and is a member of a far-right organization. (AP)
