Good Morning from the Zundelsite:

It is true that a mistrial in the Holocaust Heresy Trial in Germany 
has been declared!

That does not mean, apparently, that a second attempt will not be 
made by the German government which has agitated for two decades to 
bring Ernst Zundel to trial and sentence him, come hell or high 
water! 

A brief comment:  Apparently the matter of a "mandatory" attorney is 
customary in Germany.  This is, as far as I can tell, a 
court-appointed "watch dog" attorney who has the power to steer the 
defense in a direction that pleases the court.  If this impression on 
my part is wrong, I would be grateful for a correction.

Here is my translation as best as I can do it, of the brief news item 
I received this morning from someone who was present in court. 

[START]

As espected, Dr. Meinerzhagen has kept to his strategy of last week. 
All motions presented by the defense were declared as having no basis 
(!) and were rejected, and that meant that Mrs. Sylvia Stolz, the 
mandatory attorney [originally agreed to by the court], has lost her 
mandate. 

Since the court insists on a mandatory defense attorney, and since 
Dr. Schaller was also rejected by the court, a new mandatory attorney 
has now been found who has the confidence of Ernst and is acceptable 
by the court.

The trial was ended today after two-and-a-half hours.  A new court 
date could only be set for mid- to end of February since naturally 
the new mandatory attorney needs time to work through the mountain of 
documents. 

The media, especially radio and TV, were sparsely present today, but 
the court room was packed, just like last week.

Security provisions were the same, which caused a delay of 35 
minutes.  In the courtroom there was triple the number of police to 
prevent applause as well as evidence of disagreement and to remove 
the "trouble makers" from the court room - which wasn't necessary, by 
the way.

Erwartungsgemäß hat der Vors. Richter am Landgericht Dr. Meinerzhagen 
seine linie der vergangenen Woche beibehalten. Sämtliche Anträge der 
Verteidigung wurden als "unbegründet"(!) zurückgewiesen und damit war 
auch Frau RAin Sylvia Stolz ihr Mandat als Pflichtverteidigerin los.

Da das Gericht auf einem Pflichtverteidiger besteht, Dr. Schaller, 
Wien, ebenfalls vom Gericht abgelehnt wurde / wird, muß nun ein neuer 
Pflichtverteidiger gefunden werden, der sowohl das Vertrauen von 
Ernst Zündel hat als auch dem Gerichr "genehm" ist.
Der Prozeß wurde heute nach knapp zweinhalb Stunden ausgesetzt. Die 
Wiederaufnahme dürfte frühestens Mitte / Ende Februar erfolgen, da 
sich ein neuer Pflichtverteidiger logischerweise in die umfangreichen 
Dokumente erst einmal einarbeiten muß.

Die Medien, vor allem Fernsehen und Rundfunk, waren heute schwach 
vertreten! - Der gleiche Saal wie in der Vorwoche war indes wieder 
voll.

Die Sicherheitsmaßnahmen waren die gleichen, was erneute zu einer 
Verzögerung von 35 Minuten führte; im Saal war die dreifache Anzahl 
vonm Polizisten, um Beifalls- wie Mißfallenskundgebungen zu 
unterbinden und die "Störer" aus dem Saal zu schaffen, was indes 
NICHT erforderlich wurde.
