Justice Chancellor Rules on Mohammed Cartoon

Sweden’s Chancellor of Justice has ruled that a cartoon drawn by a Swedish artist depicting the Prophet Mohammed as a dog, subsequently published in a local Swedish newspaper in August, does not constitute incitement to racial hatred.

Three Swedish Muslim organisations had requested the justice chancellor to press racial hatred charges against the Nerikes Allehanda newspaper and its editor, who wrote an article alongside the drawing defending press freedoms.

In a statement chancellor Göran Lambertz said while many Muslims could interpret the cartoon as offensive, neither the drawing nor the article, could be proven to show contempt for any ethnic group.

The publication of the cartoon depicting the Prophet Mohammed as a dog-like sculpture decorating a traffic roundabout, or traffic circle, prompted official complaints from Egypt, Iran and Pakistan.
