Turkish pianist is sentenced again

There was international outrage earlier this year when Fazil Say was sentenced to ten months in prison, suspended, for blasphemy after retweeting a poetic line about Islam.

A retrial was ordered. Fazil did not attend. Sentence was handed down on Friday. The verdict: 10 months, suspended.


More protests, anyone?

    That said, someone should tell Ms. Berganza about this. Maybe she might want to reconsider her position about jailing opera directors whose work she doesn’t like.

  2. It’s too bad he wants to live in a country that doesn’t allow him to do these things.
