Press Release on the Scandalous Judgment Against Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff
Gemmingen, February 15, 2011
On February 15, 2011, Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff was sentenced to a fine of €480 for “denigration of religious doctrines” by Judge Bettina Neubauer in the Vienna Regional Court. She was acquitted of the original charge of ethnic incitement.
The court based “denigration of religious doctrines” on the fact that Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff had characterized Mohammed as “pedophiliac” because — according to Islamic legend — he had sex with nine year-old Aisha. In the court’s view, this was “denigrating” because Mohammed did not have sex exclusively with children but also with grown women, and stayed with Aisha until his death when she was eighteen years old. So he was not inclined to pedophilia.
It might be interesting to see whether this scandalous judicial interpretation could persist in regard to convicted child molesters in Austria. It is known that many of these child molesters were fathers of families at the time. This could therefore no longer legally be called “pedophilia.”
Elisabeth’s statement after the trial is clear: “Today is a sad day for my young daughter and for all other young girls.”
Elisabeth will appeal this verdict and so she needs your continuing support. Please help according to your means! She is defending not only herself, but freedom of speech for all of us.
Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff represents the CITIZEN MOVEMENT PAX EUROPA (BPE) at the international level, as well as heading delegations to conferences of the OSCE in Vienna and Warsaw. She also gives Islam-specific seminars for various hosts.
