    A blogger facing trial over a video which appears to question the Holocaust has been told she cannot use the internet to post antisemitic material.

    Alison Chabloz is accused of calling Auschwitz a “theme park”  and the gas chambers a “hoax” in a video called "Survivors"  posted on June 8.

    Appearing at Westminster Magistrates’ Court last week in a private prosecution brought by the Campaign Against Antisemitism (CAA), she was given unconditional bail, with a trial date set for March 24.

    But the bail conditions have been tightened following a request from prosecution barrister Jonathan Goldberg after fresh online material came to light.

    The court ordered on Friday that Chabloz was: “Not to post or send or cause to be sent via the internet or any other means, whether via social media or Youtube or at all, any message or other material which is in whole or part racist or antisemitic and grossly offensive.”

    She was also forbidden from posting material relating to CAA chairman Gideon Falter, CAA’s director of investigations Stephen Silverman or any of the group’s legal team acting in the case, or their families, particularly anything that “might lead to the identification of their home or professional addresses”.

    CAA brought the prosecution after the Crown Prosecution Service decided not to press charges.

    Chabloz, 52, of Glossop, Derbyshire, denies improper use of public electronic communications network.
