MCI claims to change the Penal Code in order to stop Nazi impunity.

On Friday, the president of Movement against Intolerance, Esteban Ibarra, lamented the Supreme Court decision to absolve the four members of Kalki library for selling Nazi ideology material.

"We respect, we accept, but we don’t share and sadly receive the sentence, which is a step backwards in the eradication of racist, xenophobic, anti-semitic and homophobic behaviours," said Ibarra.

He stressed that the European Union, in a framework decision on racism and xenophobia, required Spain to revise and adjust the Penal Code - which punishes provocation to racism and discrimination, but not incitement – but these changes haven’t been done, although the deadline was November 28, 2010.

This statement, according to Ibarra, creates a new stage for the victims and takes "to suffer that Spain is a country where neo-Nazi groups, racist propaganda and xenophobia campaigns go unpunished."

The four perpetrators, who had a far-right bookshop and publishing house in Barcelona, had been sentenced to three and a half years in prison by the Court of Barcelona, ​​but the Supreme Court has now acquitted holding that the Constitution doesn’t prohibit ideologies and that Neo-Nazi ideas are illegal only when they clearly risked 'creating a hostile climate' which could lead to violence.
