Denying the Holocaust, the genocide of Jews and other groups during World War II, is already punishable in several European countries.
In many cases, however, it goes under hate crime legislation.
- The Holocaust is the greatest crime in the history of world history, and it must not be forgotten.
Those who try to make the world forget and shuffle the cards, they must be held accountable for it, says Morgan Johansson.
If you conduct propaganda aimed at this, you should be able to be punished with such legislation.
The Minister of Justice mentions several reasons why the government wants to get the law in place, including that right-wing extremism is growing stronger and that the number of eyewitnesses who survived the Holocaust is dwindling.
All parliamentary parties are invited to participate in the parliamentary committee that is now to be appointed to review the issue.
