Man charged with NZ mosque attacks gave cash to Austrian far-right – Chancellor Kurz

A spokesman for prosecutors in Graz said the head of Austria’s Identitarian Movement, Martin Sellner, received 1,500 euros ($1,690) in early 2018 from a donor with the same name as the man charged over the March 15 Christchurch attacks.

New Zealand authorities were not immediately available for comment on Kurz’s statement.

Sellner, who did not reply to requests for comment from Reuters, published two videos on YouTube in which he said he had received a donation which involved an email address that matched the name of the Australian alleged to have carried out the Christchurch attacks.

In one of the videos, he said: “I’m not a member of a terrorist organization. I have nothing to do with this man, other than that I passively received a donation from him.”

He said the donation was from early 2018 and that he would give the money to a charitable foundation.
