In court, the accused denied the comments attributed to him and defended his purchase as a joke. "I've seen a lot worse than that -- shirts with Adolf Hitler on the back for example," he told the court.
The prosecutor had initially proposed restricting the legal follow-up to a simple caution but the case came to court because the accused did not respond to a summons.
As a result, the prosecutor is now seeking a 300-euro fine. The judge will deliver his verdict on December 21.
