I’m not sure why this is news now, since as far back as December the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Louise Arbour, was poking into the controversy. “Danish Muslims sue over Muhammad cartoons,” from the TimesOnline, with thanks to the Constantinopolitan Irredentist:
Danish Muslim groups are to report Denmark to the UN Commissioner on Human Rights for failing to prosecute the newspaper that first published controversial cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.
The 27 Muslim groups also plan to sue the newspaper, Jyllands-Posten, for defamation in a Danish court, according to their lawyer, Michael Christiani Havemann.
“Denmark is obliged through the UN to secure the civil rights of its citizens,” Havemann said by telephone. “The national prosecutor won’t pursue the case and, therefore, acts as a barrier to justice to the complainants.”
