According to the prosecution, the woman via Facebook disparaged people with a foreign background.
In a post from 2015, she wrote that immigrants “fire up cars and urinate and defecate on the streets.”
This violates the law on incitement to racial hatred, according to the prosecutor.
The accused woman in police interrogation admitted that she wrote the post, but denied that she committed a criminal act.
As evidence against the 70-year-old woman there is a screenshot from Facebook.
The penalty for incitement to racial hatred is imprisonment not exceeding two years or, for petty offenses, fines. If the offense is considered to be grave, the sentenced defendant’s prison term could be of between six months and four years.
