Third Party In Tintin Suit Must File 15,000 Euro Guarantee; May Leave Case

imageIf I'm reading this post at the French-language comics news clearinghouse ActuaBD.com correctly, the case brought against Casterman and Moulinsart over racial imagery in Tintain Au Congo may lose one of its principal complainants. While Bienvenu Mbutu Mondodo, and the Conseil représentatif des associations noires are protected from providing a money guaranteed because of their national status, Yves Otaka, as a former advisor to the Congolese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, would have to file a 15,00 Euro guarantee. The articles suggest that his part of the complaint might be withdrawn in order to not delay the case by fighting that ruling, which would place the case's future partly in the hands of an individual and an organization who seem to come at the book with different degrees of concern and different ideas of resolution.
