A pro-White activist has been jailed for ignoring a court order to stop writing about Jews, Negroes and immigrants on the Internet.
The Federal Court incarcerated Tomasz Winnicki of London, Ont., for nine months for contempt of court for refusing to cease his "vile and unrelenting message of hatred." Justice Konrad von Finckenstein sent Winnicki to jail for flouting a Federal Court order last fall to stop his Internet postings while a complaint against him wound its way through the Canadian Human Rights Commission.
Winnickiís lawyer, Dominic Lamb, argued in court there is no proof Winnicki posted the messages, and that someone else posing as him could have done so. Furthermore, even if Winnicki did post the messages, they could have been edited, Lamb said.
"In my view, none of these arguments are sustainable," wrote von Finckenstein.
In April, the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal ruled against Winnicki and fined him $6,000 for his "vicious and dehumanizing" messages. Winnickiís case ended up in the Federal Court because the human rights commission asked a judge last year to issue an injunction ordering the hate-monger to cease his activities until the tribunal made a ruling.
