Two men have appeared in Auckland District Court charged with vandalising 20 Jewish graves in the city’s Grafton Cemetery.

Graves with slogans

19-yr-old Robert Moulden has pleaded guilty after being charged with intentional damage. He will be sentenced in February.

20-yr-old Christian Landmark has pleaded not guilty and will appear in court again in January.

The graves were desecrated with swastikas and slogans with messages such as F*** Israel. The graves were also extensively daubed with “88” which refers to “HH” the eight letter of the alphabet and an acronym for “Heil Hitler”
