Georg Zanger wants the FPÖ boss and several other people who left comments on his popular Facebook page to be charged with inciting hatred. The Vienna Prosecutor’s Office is currently investigating the case and will make a decision on whether Strache may have broken Austria’s speech laws against minorities and refugees.

Strache posted a newspaper article about a young Syrian asylum seeker attempting to kill himself by lying in front of a tram in Vienna, with the comment: ‘Stunned!’. It triggered a wave of hate comments directed at asylum seekers, and anyone critical of an anti-immigration viewpoint.

Zanger says that in order for Strache to avoid facing pretrial detention as he is at risk of repeating the offence of hate speech, his Facebook page should be closed down immediately.
