    BERLIN, March 31 (Xinhuanet) -- A German court has decided that internet providers in the Germany must obey the government order to block access to Nazi-propaganda sites, according to the ruling revealed Thursday.

    The ruling, handed down by the Cologne Management Court, said that the blocking order was legal, because contents on such sites are forbidden by German laws.

    On February 2002, the municipal government in Dusseldorf ordered 80 internet providers in the Nordrhein-Westfalen state to block access to Nazi-propaganda sites, which were based in the United States and other foreign countries.

    One of the internet providers filed a law suit with the Cologne Management Court, arguing that the blockade would affect the survival of their companies. Enditem
