The main protagonist of the dispute before the administrative court in Berlin were missing, Chancellor Angela Merkel had four lawyers represented, the television satirist Jan böhmermann. Nevertheless, the media interest was enormous.
in court, the two Celebrities has launched a provocation böhm's, which is now three years back. 31. March 2016 had offended the artist in his ZDF-show "Neo magazine Royale," the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in an abusive poem, evil, sexually. However, the obscene verses were in a frame narrative, the fact that she wanted to illustrate just what could Satire in Germany.
In an Effort to avoid an affair of the state, created Merkel first.
in The process in Berlin it was not about the content of the poem, but rather a diplomatic Intervention, in which Merkel played a major role. In March 2016, the German government had negotiated with Turkey, an agreement which was to reduce the Crossing of refugees to the Greek Islands is crucial. The Chancellor was relying on Erdogan's cooperation urgently.
In an Effort to appease the due Bohemian man foaming Turkish President, called the Turkish Minister of foreign Affairs and its spokesman had reports that she had referred to böhm's poem as "deliberately hurtful". In an Effort to avoid an affair of the state, created Merkel so a fortiori.
Two weeks later, also saw Angela Merkel, a head of government, a personal judgment with a quasi-legal of the tongue is not the state, and described their Statement as a "mistake", you get angry yourself. At this admission the Bohemian man would have been able to let it go at that, but in his own case the master of the ironic Intangibility means it, apparently, very serious. In the fall of 2017, his attorney announced an injunction that Merkel should not be allowed to repeat their criticism. The Chancellor had interfered for political reasons in the free case law and "a legal assessment of the work carried out, comes a prejudice."
in court böhm's lawyer repeated the accusation that Merkel violated her duty of Neutrality. The lawyers of the Chancellery, declared, however, that classification was political, not legal. In addition, the Chancellor had already assured before the trial, in writing, that they will not repeat their criticism. This line of reasoning was followed by the court and declared the action inadmissible. It could only be collected if a repeat of the threat actually. This is not the case. Merkel's statement was neither unlawful, nor had it violated the principle of Objectivity.
In his fourth legal procedure, this was already böhm's third defeat. The dance had begun with a Triumph: In October 2016, the public Prosecutor's office in Mainz, the criminal investigation for insulting a foreign head of state. Böhm's tirades were protected by the satirical context, it was said.
Since then, but there was in civil cases, only failures. In may 2018, the Hamburg higher regional court confirmed the first instance judgment: 18 by 24 rows of the abusive poem are "defamatory" and should not be repeated. Böhm's lawyer has filed an appeal at the Federal court of justice.
