British neo-Nazis plotted to kill Spanish judge Baltasar Garzón

February 13, 2011

The Telegraph reports on one of the revelations in the new documentary about Baltasar Garzón, which is premiering at the Berlinale:

A British based neo-Nazi group allegedly plotted to assassinate one of Spain’s leading judges over his attempt to investigate the crimes of Spanish dictator Francisco Franco. Members of the violent far-right group allegedly planned to murder the magistrate last summer in The Hague where he took up a temporary post at the International Criminal Court after being suspended from Spain’s National Court.

    Garzon is also in trouble for failing to declare earnings he made at NYU in New York to the Spanish government. He also should investgate who burned churches,murdered priests and church going people in Spain.New Natzis are despicable but so are communist thugs who seem to be made into saints in this magazine.

    Garzon is a hero: priests murdered and burned churches, just a mith, of course comparing to the amount of republicans murdered during and after the war. Its a SHAME that in Spain most of the republicans murdered are still in mass graves and the constitutional has banned Garzón. The dictator was himself a nazi, and the church was on his side. Plus, the church itself has centuries of experience burning people. Start looking into the church you defend so much, before blaming blindly.
