Roger Waters, the co-founder of Pink Floyd, is being investigated by Berlin police for incitement to hatred. The investigation was launched after Waters wore a Nazi-style uniform at a concert in Berlin on May 17.
The uniform was a long, black coat with red armbands. Waters has been accused of anti-Semitism in the past.
He has floated an inflatable pig emblazoned with the Star of David at his concerts. Waters has said that he is not anti-Semitic, and that he was wearing the uniform to protest against the rise of fascism.
The police investigation is ongoing. Waters is due to perform in several other German cities in the coming weeks. It is unclear what the outcome of the investigation will be.
Waters could face a fine or even imprisonment if he is found guilty of incitement to hatred. The case has sparked a debate about freedom of speech and the limits of what is acceptable in a public forum.
The German government has a strict law against incitement to hatred. The law prohibits the public display of symbols that are associated with Nazi Germany.
Waters' actions could be seen as a violation of this law. However, Waters' supporters argue that he was not trying to glorify the Nazi regime, but rather to protest against it.
