A law has been adopted that provide a more severe penalty for incitement to racial hatred, racism and Holocaust denial. It was long expected, particularly because of the development of the Golden Dawn. Its path has not been easy. For example, in the spring, an amendment to the immigration bill had been proposed to sanction abusive denunciations of acts involving the police or border guards – so especially targeting migrants alleging violations of their rights.
The law passed, remains that it is applied – main weakness of the legislation in force so far.
