Holocaust denial or "trivialisation" of Nazi atrocities would be banned, along with and participation in any group that promotes race hate." And a splendid example of doublespeak: "Leonello Gabrici, the Commission's judicial spokesman, denied that there was any intention of curbing political expression. "This totally respects free speech. It will be up to judges to decide where the balance lies" he said."
