A tenth-round victory for NRW Interior Minister Ralf Jäger against PRO NRW: According to a quick decision by the Cologne district court today, the Mohammed caricatures by Kurt Westergaard can be shown at the PRO NRW meeting in front of the mosque construction site in Ehrenfeld. Markus Beisicht: “That is a great achievement again for us and for freedom of speech.”
The following was communicated in a press release from PRO NRW:
Cologne district court likewise lifts “caricature ban” by NRW Interior Minister
PRO NRW also wins the last round in the “war of trials” against them started by the Interior Minister.
The Cologne district court, with today’s decision (Az.: 290 L 590/12), lifted the “caricature ban” decreed in an edict by NRW Interior Minister Jäger for Cologne as well. The PRO NRW Citizens’ Movement will be able right away to exhibit the caricatures from Kurt Westergaard even at the last rally by the nation wide “Freedom instead of Islam” election tour.
“This is a beautiful day for free speech and for the rule of law, which was profoundly confirmed by the district courts of the state of NRW in a ‘trial war’ that has been going on for almost two weeks,” PRO NRW president and top candidate for his party, Markus Beisicht, commented of the achievement by his party in court.
Meanwhile, the next to last stage of the “Freedom instead of Islam” tour by PRO NRW in Düren this morning (photo above) went off smoothly. The retinue is now making its way to Cologne, where starting at 2 p.m., the rally will start with a speech by Susanne Winter. In addition, a live ticker will be on freiheitlich.me. We will give an extensive report soon afterward.
