Holocaust denier David Irving will be deported following an Austrian Supreme Court decision to release him from prison, Israel Radio reported on Wednesday evening. The British author was imprisoned after being convicted for denying the Holocaust - a criminal offense in Austria. A court headed by a judge who supported Jorg Heider's Austrian Freedom Party decided Wednesday that Irving could serve the last third of his sentence on probation. Irving, who had already served 13 months in prison, was freed at the end of the discussion. Irving's wife said that he had been transferred to police custody and would be driven directly from there to the airport on Thursday, at which point he would fly back to his house in London. Irving will hold a press conference on Friday, she added.
