Member of parliament Mette Thiesen convicted of defamation

the Copenhagen city Court has on Friday convicted member of parliament Mette Thiesen (NB) for having violated the fitness instructor Mahmoud Loubanis honor. She was acquitted, however, of the punishment due to limitation, but must pay a compensation of dkk 15,000.

Mette Thiesen wrote 19. april 2018 at its facebookprofil a post with the headline "Terrorist-sympathizer used by Danmarks Radio".

In the advertisement, she goes in the flesh on the fitnessinstruktøren Mahmoud Loubani, who participated in a DR program.

Loubani had as a comment to a third person's post on Facebook about Omar El-Hussein written "Allah yerhamu", which means "may God forgive you".

El-Hussein's attack in 2015 a debatarrangement and a synagogue in Copenhagen and killed filmmanden Finn Nørgaard and the volunteer guard Dan Uzan.

Loubanis comment for El-Hussein-the advertisement perceived Thiesen as a sympatitilkendegivelse to Omar El-Hussein.

To Thiesen in the first place interested in the Loubani, was because he had commented on a posting on her facebookprofil, where she told that she had been threatened.

the comment suggested Loubani, that the threats were fabricated by Thiesen itself.

And in the context he used the grinning yellow faces, so-called emojier. It got Thiesen to in the advertisement from the 19. april 2018 to mention Loubani as "a person who laughs at people who receive threats".

The statements and the term "terrorist-sympathizer" was after Loubanis view, a violation of the injurielovgivningen, and therefore he brought the case against Thiesen.

Court believes that the term "terroristsypmatisør" is offensive, but has, however, assessed that it was in order to call Loubani for "a person who laughs at people who receive threats".
