Bishop Williamson to appeal fine for Holocaust denial

Catholic World News - April 19, 2010

The attorney for Bishop Richard Williamson has announced that his client will appeal his fine for Holocaust denial. A German court last week confirmed the Society of St. Pius X prelate’s conviction for his public statements questioning the severity of the Holocaust but reduced the fine imposed on the prelate to $13,350.

    Doesn't he live in England? Then how are the Germans going to enforce the fine? I imagine he could just blow it off, assuming he's not planning on visiting Germany.
