Through a transmission error, a report in yesterday's Independent on the trial of the US neo-Nazi leader, Gary Lauck, wrongly attributed to the defence a statement that Lauck had "continued to transport Nazi literature to Germany". The article should have read: "But, as the defence pointed out at yesterday's trial, under US law Lauck was committing no crime in his Nebraskan Heimat. Though he continued to transport Nazi literature to Germany even after he was caught and jailed in 1976, he evaded capture until last year . . ."
