Historian wins
action over

From Richard Bassett

Mr David Irving, the British historian, has successfully brought an action against the Austrian Government for deporting him from Vienna in June 1985.
Mr Irving, who visited Vienna to give a lecture on Hitler's deputy, Rudolf Hess, was arrested at the Cafe Landtmann in the centre of Vienna and subsequently deported by Austrian police.
A spokesman for the Austrian Ministry of Justice confirmed yesterday that in an action in Austria's administrative court Mr Irving had been given his costs and been declared persona grata.
The spokesman said Mr Irving would also be bringing a case for wrongful arrest against the officials involved later this year.
