Report: German neo-Nazi Horst Mahler arrested after seeking asylum in Hungary
Quote:One of Germany's most prominent far-right figures applied for asylum in Hungary and was then subsequently arrested, according to reports on Monday. Horst Mahler claimed he was being persecuted in Germany.

A prominent former German left-wing militant turned neo-Nazi applied for political asylum in Hungary, where he was arrested, German daily TAZ reported on Monday, citing a spokesperson from the Munich prosecutor's office.

A German court in 2009 sentenced Horst Mahler to 10 years in prison for inciting hatred and Holocaust denial, which is a criminal offense in Germany. The 81-year-old former lawyer was released early two years ago due to poor health, but was then ordered back for other offenses committed while in prison. Instead of returning, he went on the run in April.

Further investigations are also pending, including the publication of what authorities say is an anti-Semitic book.

Regional daily Mitteldeutsche Zeitung cited an open letter Mahler published on May 12 requesting asylum from Hungary and its President, Viktor Orban.

Arrested in Hungary

Mahler wrote that he was being "persecuted" for publishing a book.

"The work is a religious-ideological declaration. It has no relation to Holocaust denial," Mahler wrote.

The Hungarian embassy in Berlin denied the asylum request. On Facebook, the embassy said: "Hungary is a state of law and a member of the EU. Germany is also a state of law and member of the EU." The asylum request "therefore lacks any basis," it said.

Wouldn't have happened in North Korea.


Not in haunts of marble chill,
Temples drear where ancients trod,—
Nay, in oaks on woody hill
Lives and moves the German God.
