After months of uncertainty. German prosecutors has droped an investigation against satirist Jan Boehmermann. He was lodge by Turkish government for his satirical poem over President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on last March.
The prosecutors in the western city of Mainz said they had not found sufficient evidence to continue the inquiry against Jan Boehmermann.
In a statement on Tuesday, the prosecutors said that “criminal actions could not be proven with the necessary certainty”.
It was “questionable”, the statement added, whether Boehmermann’s poem constituted slander, given the satirical context in which the comedian recited it.
Conclusion: The freedom of speech wins in Germany.

The talks among European Union and Turkey is very tense. On Tuesday, Turkey’s parliament will block a deal reached with the EU on migrants if Turks do not gain visa-free access to the bloc, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has warned.
The EU says Turkey still needs to meet certain conditions, including changes to its terror laws, something Ankara has refused to do.
The deal is aimed to tackle migrant crisis
Erdogan has also said funds promised by the EU have not yet been released.
The visa deal hasn’t reached until the end of this month
German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who met Mr Erdogan on Monday, said there might not be enough time for it to be completed.
Turkey has repeatedly warned that the whole deal will collapse if this demand is not fulfilled.
“If that is not what will happen… no decision and no law in the framework of the readmission agreement will come out of the parliament of the Turkish Republic,” Mr Erdogan said at the close of the World Humanitarian Summit in Istanbul.
