Ursula Haverbeck: Update on the Verdict
by Monika Schaefer
THIS BRIEF article is just to clarify — to the best of my knowledge — the status of the heroic Ursula Haverbeck.
On December 4th, 2020, Haverbeck was found guilty for a “speech crime” under the infamous Par. 130 of the German Criminal Code. The judge sentenced her to one year in prison.
This verdict is not “rechtskräftig” — or final — as it is being appealed. Contrary to public perception, she is not currently in prison – at least not the tiny cell variety.
For many years now, Ursula Haverbeck has been dragged through the courts on various charges of incitement and disturbing the public peace under Par. 130.
Here is a portion of that Section of the German Criminal Code – Par. 130(3):
Whosoever publicly or in a meeting approves of, denies or downplays an act committed under the rule of National Socialism of the kind indicated in section 6 (1) of the Code of International Criminal Law, in a manner capable of disturbing the public peace shall be liable to imprisonment not exceeding five years or a fine.
During those years of court proceedings, headlines in the mainstream media would occasionally scream such things like: “Nazi-Oma sentenced to 10 months jail without parole!” or something similar, and this happened several times as she was going through the various levels of the courts, and on different charges. My guess is that the MSM headlines were intentionally misleading. It is understandable that many people thought she was in and out of jail during those years. But there were always appeals, more appeals, more charges, more trials, and on and on it went.
The first time she set foot in a jail cell was in 2018 after the police arrested her at her home. She spent two and a half years in jail, from age 89 to 91! On a note of interest, the former East Germany, a communist state, did not incarcerate non-violent “offenders” over 80 years of age. But in the “civilized” west, jailing octogenarians and nonagenarians is par for the course if those people have the “wrong” ideas or ask inconvenient questions.
