That has a court in Hamburg stated in a civil case brought by the Turkish head of state was instituted.

In may last year, a court ruled in a preliminary injunction even though that share that Erdogan may be offensive, not by the comedian were to be recited.

Böhmermann had the anger of Erdogan on the neck is reached, with the poem Smaadkritiek, that he on 31 march in his show Neo Magazin Royale for the broadcaster ZDF had been nominated. He brought in it the faithful Erdogan, among others, in connection with child pornography and sex with animals.

The Public prosecution in Mainz decided earlier Böhmermann not to prosecute for insult of a foreign head of state. An appeal against this by Erdogan was in October rejected.

At the last judgment an appeal is possible.
