More examples of 'freedom of speech' - French style
The French cartoonist Zeon was arrested last Tuesday morning … by four police officers of the Brigade of Repression of Delinquency People (BRDP).
At 7am four police officers woke the cartoonist to take him before the judge to the High Court Instance of Paris.A complaint appears to have been filed by the BNVCA (National Bureau of Vigilance against Anti-Semitism).
The complaint seems to refer to the drawing – for which Zeon had yet been released last year by the 17th chamber – representing a balance and unbalanced weight of several historical crimes, but also for another drawing, which was not retained by the prosecutor at the trial, representing a Palestinian child stabbed by a knife-shaped Israel.
The judge has indicted the designer of incitement to racial, religious hatred, by speech, writing, picture or means of electronic communication.Zeon refused to answer his questions.He was set free in late morning.
