Saudi lawyer uses English libel to sue Danish papers
The Saudi lawyer claiming to represent 95,000 descendants Mohammed is using the controversial English libel laws to sue Danish newspapers who printed a Motoon.
The Danish Minister for Justice Lars Barfoed has complained to the EU commission:
But it would be taking it to the extreme if an English court could rule against the Danish media and then require compensation and court costs to be paid.
Dodgy Saudi lawyer Faisal Yamani has failed to get an apology from most of the Danish papers and is now suing for compensation in the only venue left open to him. Inadvertantly, he has given boost to the libel reform campaign.
