Despite world’s protests at the time regarding drawings of the prophet muhammad released by Danish publishers, French satirical political newspaper Charlie Hebdo which won a court request ban from Muslim French Council earlier last year as it re-printed the controversal drawings, is back again at "The Tribunal Correctionnel de Paris" for similar complain made by two islamist institutions "Union des organisations islamiques de France" (UOIF) et la "Grande Mosquée de Paris" (GMP).

Controversial drawings released in September 2005 in Denmark and never raised protests at the time. Iran Announced a Holocaust Drawings contest right after the Danish publications were released.

Court’s decision last February 2006 was very much appreciated said Director of Publication, Philippe Val at the time.

Today Val is facing similar trial, few left wing newspapers already gave support to Val, including political representative, Royal who is facing tons of critics remains very quiet on subject when rival Sarkosy said he preferred seeing caricatures rather than seeing them banned despite the newspaper had caricatured the UMP candidate in a very hard way in the past years.

The newspaper released a "SPECIAL TRIAL" edition to highlight the recent newspaper ban.

For the second time, the satirical political newspaper won controversial ban. Val simply repeated the same very words, stated a year ago "It is a good news for all us - those who defend the principle to the right to publish satire.".

About Charlie Hebdo

Charlie Hebdo (charliehebdo.fr) is a French satirical political weekly newspaper. Published every Wednesday and sometimes issues a few editions variably. Charlie Hebdo is respected as being non-conformist and liberal, and remains symbolic of the press having a certain freedom of tone, which is uncommon in France. Philippe Val is currently its editor in chief. Val has a strongly left-wing slant.
