Tourists Arrested in Germany For Performing Hitler Salute

Tourists Arrested in Germany For Performing Hitler Salute

Authorities in German city of Berlin detained two Chinese tourists for making the straight-armed Hitler salute for photos in front of the Reichstag parliament building, police said on Sunday. It was engulfed in flames by arsonists, most likely paid by the Nazi party, in 1933.

The visitors were seen taking pictures of each other with their mobile phones outside the Reichstag building, which houses the German parliament.

Violation of the law is punishable by fine or up to three years incarceration. Police witnessed the tourists breaking laws that have been in place since 1945 forbidding the use of symbols and gestures used by Hitler and his followers, The New York Times reported.

Britain to ban sale of new diesel and gasoline cars by 2040
The best electric cars are credible alternatives to their diesel and petrol counterparts, and cost little to run. Poor air quality has been linked to many deaths in recent years.

According to the BBC, the duo is faced with criminal proceedings for using banned symbols from the outlawed fascist organisation.

For the two men who thought nothing of saluting in the style of Hitler outside the Reichstag, a judge ordered each to post 500 euros, or about $589, in bail. They were asked to leave the country during the investigation. If a fine was meted out, the bail money they have already hand over would cover the costs.

For several years now, the government in Beijing has expressed growing concern over embarrassing behavior by Chinese tourists traveling overseas, and has tried to persuade travelers to respect local laws and customs. In 2013, a mainland Chinese tourist in Luxor, Egypt, discovered that a fellow countryman had carved his own hieroglyphics on the wall of a 3,500-year-old temple: "Ding Jinhao was here".
