Court Of Appeals Rejects Fine Given To Cartoonist

The Court of Appeals has rejected a ten-billion lira fine given by the lower court to a cartoonist who had depicted Prime Minister Erdoğan as a horse. Cartoonist Sefer Selvi had portrayed Prime Minister Erdoğan as a horse ridden by his adviser Cüneyt Zapsu in a cartoon published in Evrensel daily on April 5, 2004.

The court had ruled that the cartoonist had to pay 10 billion lira compensation to the Prime Minister for insulting him.

The Court of Appeals however has rejected the penalty.

The ruling might have an impact on the suit Prime Minister Erdoğan had filed against cartoonist Musa Kart saying he was humiliated by a cartoon which portrayed him as a cat entangled in a ball of wool.
Erdoğan is seeking compensation also from Erdil Yaşaroğlu, owner of the satirical weekly Penguen, for publicly humiliating him by publishing drawings of his face attached to a frog, a camel, a monkey, a snake, a duck and an elephant
