Dieudonné fined 10,000 euros for racist remarks

The controversial comedian Dieudonné was sentenced this Thursday, September 10 to a fine of 10,000 euros for having made racist remarks in June 2017 as part of his show the “ball of the quenelles ”, we learned from the Chartres parquet.

Following the requisitions of the prosecution, the court ruled that the term “Krakow pajamas gag”, in reference to the outfit worn by the Jewish deportees in Auschwitz during the Second World War and used on June 17, 2017 during a show performed at his home in Eure-et-Loir, was “offensive to Jewish victims of the Holocaust”.

The court also ordered the polemicist to pay 8,000 euros to each of the two associations which had become civil parties, the association of the National Office for Vigilance Against Antisemitism and the Ben-Gurion association.
