An Austrian man has been jailed for 18 months after posting various images online which were deemed to constitute “far-right propaganda”. He was charged under Austria’s 1947 anti-Nazi Prohibition Act, which bans material deemed to be attempting to glorify Nazism.
The 38-year-old from Salzburg was found guilty of uploading over 20 images deemed neo-Nazi propaganda onto the internet. One of the images was a cat allegedly performing a Nazi salute.
Police also found clothes with Nazi symbols in the man’s house.
