French lawyers offer support for lawsuit against Danish cartoonist
by Mohammad Ghazal
A group of French lawyers are currently studying the possibility of filing a lawsuit against Danish cartoonist Kurt Westergaard in support of the "Messenger of Allah Unites Us" campaign.
Osama Bitar, a lawyer with the campaign, said on Saturday that French lawyers have expressed their support for the campaign and its lawsuit against Westergaard, who drew inflammatory caricatures seen as insulting to the Prophet Mohammad.
"The lawyers are studying the possibility of filing a lawsuit against the cartoonist in accordance with French and international law such as the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights," Bitar, who returned from a weeklong visit to Paris on Friday, told The Jordan Times.
