Paris’ Prosecutors Office has confirmed that John Galliano will stand trial over his anti-Semitic remarks.
He is being convicted of ‘public insult’, which carries a sentence of up to 6 months imprisonment and a fine of around £18,500. The proceedings are set to take place in the second quarter of this year.
He still denies any allegations of racial abuse despite an undercover video of him in Paris café La Perle saying, “I love Hitler”, surfacing online. 50-year-old Galliano issued later a statement through a British legal firm saying, “Anti-Semitism and racism have no part in our society. I unreservedly apologize for my behaviour in causing any offence.”
