Denier sent to prison

In May 1996, Toben launched his Web site, which reprinted material from his newsletter.

Shortly after his site was established, the Executive Council of Australian Jewry lodged a formal complaint under anti-racism legislation.

While the legal investigation in Australia was completed with a public hearing into Toben's activities in November 1998, no judgment has yet been delivered, though one is expected soon.

In April Toben traveled to Germany, where he was arrested and charged with Holocaust denial.

The prosecutor in the case, Hans Klein, has indicated that he will appeal the decision and seek a longer sentence because of Toben's activities on the Internet.
