Hermann Lei, prominent SVP politician, claimed that school children are forced to learn Turkish in a swiss school, that they are forced to adjust to the foreigners and that the swiss presentation only had 10 minutes at a cultural festival. He didn’t want to name the school. In reality it was only a harmless school festival where the children voluntarily learned a couple of words in some foreign languages (like dutch), and each culture had 10 minutes (and since there were many cultural presentation, the swiss one was not longer than the combined foreign ones).
Hermann Lei is president of the naturalization commission of the city of Frauenfeld.
Lei was also in the news because he once was the owner of the adolf-hitler.ch website, and because of the affair against central bank chief Hildebrand.
