Live-Blogging the Trial of Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff, Part Two

ESW trial, day 1, #1

As reported at the ICLA website, the second hearing in Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff’s case will take place in Vienna on January 18th, next Tuesday. The Tundra Tabloids will be live-blogging the trial, and the same feed will also be at Elisabeth’s Save Free Speech website.

According to sources close to the case:

The judge is expected to go through the evidence in detail, rather than relying on a transcript which back in November was found to have several “artistic liberties”. This is primarily the audio recordings of her seminars to the FPÖ.

KGS has more:
The Tundra Tabloids hears from Elisabeth that both she and her lawyer are more than ready and willing to prove the truthfulness of everything spoken at the seminars, underlining that this is about the right to tell the truth without fear of legal punishment. For telling the truth can never be illegal in a free society, and the truth should always be the foundation for the defense and the aim for any court proceeding.

As was the case last time, the TT will be providing up-to-date details and highlights of the court proceedings as they are being fed via the courtroom by Henrik Clausen who will be the eyes and ears to what’s happening with the trial. Henrik also promises to be sending along timely photos before and throughout the court proceedings.

The hearing starts at 10:00 Finnish time, ( 9:00 CET local). The first report can be expected at around 11:00 Finnish time, (10:00 CET local), and this time will be simultaneously translated into German, and possibly French.

I will also do what I did last time: monitor the live feed from Henrik via TT, and present it here with any other information that seems appropriate.

Stay tuned.
