Neo-Nazi Fights Extradition To Germany

Compiled From Wire Services

An American neo-Nazi asked a Danish court Tuesday to block his extradition to Germany, where he is charged with distributing illegal Nazi propaganda.

Gary Lauck, 41, of Lincoln, Neb., was arrested March 20 while visiting neo-Nazis in Copenhagen. Denmark’s Justice Ministry ruled Friday that he would be turned over to Germany.

A hearing on Lauck’s appeal is scheduled for May 23.
