For the first time, a Berlin court on Monday sent a neo-Nazi musician to prison on the basis of his membership in a criminal organization, incitement of the people and distributing Nazi propaganda. The songwriter of the band “Landser” will have to spend three years and four months behind bars. The group’s bass player and drum player received a suspended sentence of 21 and 22 months respectively. As “self-proclaimed terrorists with an electric guitar,” band members posed a threat to public safety, praising the Nazi era and attacking foreigners, parliamentarians and religious communities. The group, which no longer exists, only appeared once in public and distributed its music mainly through CDs.
