觀光客在德國行納粹軍禮 被逮捕


新頭殼newtalk 2011.02.28 洪聖斐/編譯報導

儘管德國納粹黨早在二戰結束後就煙消雲散,當年美英法蘇4個占領國在德國實行的「去納粹化」(Denazification)政策直到今日仍貫徹到底,並且不分國籍一概適用。一名加拿大旅客前天在德意志帝國議會大廈前,伸直右手高舉納粹軍禮,就被逮捕。

英國《衛報》(the Telegraph)昨日報導,這名30歲的加拿大男子到德國觀光,在位於柏林的帝國議會前行納粹軍禮,他29歲的女友替他照相。幾秒鐘內,德國警察就來到他身邊,將他上手銬,拿走相機中的記憶卡。依據德國法律,這個行為可以判處6個月以下的徒刑,但德國警方只將他拘留幾個小時,就放他走了。

《衛報》指出,每年都會有上百名觀光客以為拿希特勒開開玩笑不傷大雅,卻不知道這在德國是一種犯罪行為。3年前曾有1名英國企業家在科隆機場行納粹軍禮,也立刻遭到逮捕。

在德國,沒有人會說過去就過去了,何必沒完沒了地提起納粹的罪行。面對歷史上的罪惡,德國人仍在反省並嚴加警惕。迄今德國仍是歐洲新納粹主義力量最薄弱的國家之一。

行納粹軍禮 加人德國會前遭逮
加通社柏林27日電

有歐洲媒體報導說,一名加拿大遊客在德國柏林國會前做出納粹軍禮(Nazi Salute)的動作後遭逮捕。

英國每日郵報報導說,一名30歲魁省人站在德國國會前,手向前伸直做出向希特勒行禮的動作,他女朋友為他拍了照。

報導繼續說,警察數秒後就來到現場,逮捕了他並帶走了相機中的記憶卡。

行納粹軍禮或展示納粹象徵在德國屬嚴重違法行為,若這名加拿大人遭控罪,他最高或被判囚六個月。

不過,英國每日郵報又報導指出,該男子遭拘留了數小時,在支付了保釋金後獲釋。

Berlin: Tourist arrested after giving Hitler salute

Canadian tourist's fun and games taken seriously by local authorities after an attempt to stage a Monty Python-esque sketch in front of Reichstag leads to arrest

Hundreds of the tourists who visit Berlin's Reichstag every year seem to believe that if they impersonate Adolf Hitler and his henchmen, as done by the Monty Python crew with incredible success, they too will receive applause from adoring crowds.

What they fail to understand is that impersonating any Nazi gestures or using any Nazi regime symbols is illegal in Germany and is considered a severe crime with a punishment that includes imprisonment.

A 30-year-old Canadian tourist who visited the Reichstag and had apparently overlooked German laws and regulations and wished to make other visitors to the popular tourist attraction laugh, asked his girlfriend to film him while he gave a Heil Hitler salute.

It took less than a minute before policemen walked up to the Quebec resident and proceeded to handcuff and arrest him. The police also confiscated his digital camera's memory card Britain's Daily Mail reported on Monday.

The Canadian tourist now stands to be prosecuted for carrying out a 'forbidden gesture' and if convicted could be imprisoned for up to six months. Nevertheless, it is estimated that he will not be prosecuted but will be forced to pay a fine. Local media later reported that the tourist was released on bail a few hours after his arrest.

'You can call him a b*****d and you can give him the finger, but you cannot do that,' a German police officer said in response to the arrest.

Arresting foreign citizens over Nazi salutes has occurred in the past in Germany. Three years ago a British businessman gave the salute to a Cologne airport employee and was arrested within 90 seconds by police at the scene.
