Johanna Kaschke’s Appeal.

leave a comment »

According to the Index on Censorship:

“Lady Justice Smith today refused blogger and activist Johanna Kaschke the right to appeal against a judgement which deemed her suing of David Osler an abuse of process.

In 2008 Kaschke sued the labour blogger Osler for libel, reacting to a post on his site which referenced an article in leading German news publication Der Spiegel. This article reported her wrongful arrest by German police in 1975.”

Update 1: This past post hopefully will provide some background, Jack And Johanna.

Update 2: There is a long history to this case and the posts below should help clarify the issues:
