CPS Stops Jesus Case
The private prosecution brought by Essex-girl Emily Mapfuwa against Gateshead's BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art has been taken over by the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) and stopped. Emily had claimed that Terence Koh's statue of Christ with an erection outraged public decency (CLICK). As mobs of outraged Christians hadn't run amok the way outraged Muslims do, the CPS took the view that public decency hadn't been sufficiently outraged to warrant the prosecution. Hard cheese, Emily. Try Walt Disney Inc. Surely Mickey Mouse with an erection - another of Koh's trashy sculptures - breaches Disney's copyright.
