The far-right essayist Alain Soral was ordered by the Paris Court of Appeal to pay € 134,400 to the International League against Racism and Anti-Semitism (Licra) for releasing a book deemed anti-Semitic, according to a decision consulted on Saturday, September 26 by AFP.

Published for the first time in 1892, the book "Le Salut par les Juifs" by Léon Bloy had been reissued by the Soral publishing house and put on sale on its website in 2013, in the collection "Les InfréKentables" .

La Licra had taken legal action and the Bobigny court had ordered the withdrawal of fifteen passages deemed anti-Semitic, under penalty of a fine of € 300 per day of delay.
