FNs generalsekretær Ban Ki-moon fordømmer filmen Innocence of Muslims i hard ordelag. Han kommer med en definisjon av ytringsfrihet som er meget snever.
U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said on Wednesday the maker of an anti-Islam film that triggered violent protests across the Muslim world abused his right to freedom of expression by making the movie, which he called a «disgraceful and shameful act.»
«Freedoms of expression should be and must be guaranteed and protected, when they are used for common justice, common purpose,» Ban told a news conference.
«When some people use this freedom of expression to provoke or humiliate some others’ values and beliefs, then this cannot be protected in such a way.»
«My position is that freedom of expression, while it is a fundamental right and privilege, should not be abused by such people, by such a disgraceful and shameful act,» he said.
