Freedom of speech in Germany does not extend to neo-Nazis who claim the Holocaust never happened, the nation's highest court ruled Tuesday.
The Constitutional Court upheld Munich's threat to break up a rally by a far-right party if the guest of honor stated that the Holocaust never happened.
The decision reassured Jewish leaders upset by a lower court ruling last month that overturned the conviction of a rightist who denied Jews were systematically murdered by the Nazis.
Tuesday's decision was in response to a challenge by Guenter Deckert's far-right National Democratic Party.
On March 12, 1991, Munich warned Deckert that a rally would be broken up if British historian David Irving gave a speech stating the Holocaust never happened.
The party restrained its speakers from denying the Holocaust and later sued the city for violating party members' freedom of speech.
