The European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg has ordered Spain to pay 13,000 euros (over $16,000) damages and legal costs to a Barcelona bookseller jailed for disseminating books that dared to question the generally accepted dogma regarding historical events, particularly with regard to the Jewish so-called holocaust.
Pedro Varela, owner of the Europa bookstore in the Catalan capital, had been seeking compensation of 125,000 euros (over $160,000) for the seven-month prison sentence imposed on him by Barcelona Provincial High Court in 2010. The court originally considered him guilty of incitement to racial hatred and gave him a five year sentence. Later we was cleared of this charge and the jail term was shortened.
The Strasbourg-based court ruled that the sentence violated Article 6 of the European Convention on Human Rights, which establishes a defendant’s rights to a fair trial within reasonable time and to be informed of the crimes of which they are accused so they can prepare their defense.
He pointed out to the court that Article 9 (freedom of thought, conscience and religion) and 10 (freedom of expression), were also violated by this arrest.
This is not the first time Varela has been arrested for distributing thought provoking books .
What a brave man to continue offering books presenting facts on topics that the New World Order sharks are trying to repress.
Hail Pedro Varela!
