The High Court of Western Denmark concluded that Jyllands-Posten did not defame Muslims by printing the Muhammed cartoons in 2005.


The Islamic Faith Society, who had wanted chief editor Carsten Juste and culture editor Flemming Rose charged for defamation, were disappointed by the judgment. 

“It is very sad that the high court think that it’s ok to defame others and to put down minorities.  We are very disappointed,” said IFS’s spokesperson Muhammed Nehme to

Over the next few days the IFS will consider how they will continue, since it’s not stopping here, says Muhammed Nehme.

He says that they will not stop to think and discuss the sentence again, and in a few days they will announce their next step.
