Convicted of "hate speech" after criticising Islam.

Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff is the daughter of an Austrian diplomat, and was partly educated in Iran, where she was present during the Islamic revolution of 1979.


Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff worked at the Austrian embassy in Kuwait during the Iraqi invasion in 1990. She subsequently worked as assistant to the Vice Chancellor of the Republic of Austria, Mr. Wolfgang Schüssel (1995-1997), at the Austrian Embassy Kuwait, Visa Section (1997-2000) and the Austrian Embassy Tripoli, Libya (2000-2001).

"Hate speech" conviction

In 2017 Sabaditsch-Wolff was charged with denigrating religious teachings ("hate speech") after she termed the prophet Muhammad a paedophile. The Austrian courts convicted her and sentenced her to jail and a fine,[3] after determining that she "was making value judgments partly based on untrue facts and without regard to the historical context.”[4]
