Holocaust Denier Bankrupt
Fredrick Toben, the Holocaust denier who was jailed in 2009 for contempt of a court order banning him from publishing anti-Semitic material on his website, has been declared bankrupt.
Toben, who is based in Adelaide, was ordered earlier this year to pay $175,618.97 in court costs to Jeremy Jones, who filed the original case against him. When Toben failed to pay the court costs, Jones lodged a bankruptcy claim against him.
In the Federal Magistrates Court Monday, Registrar Anthony Tesoriero, on the application of Jeremy Jones, made a sequestration order against Toben, declaring him bankrupt. He has 21 days to appeal.
Despite his financial woes, Toben says on his Adelaide Institute website he will “not recant and continues to denounce the Holocaust lies.”
Jones said today’s declaration was an administrative ruling. “It has nothing to do with the legal or moral argument at all,” he said.
