Tintin Au Congo Avoids Swedish Ban

An attempt by a Swedish citizen of Congolese origin to ban Tintin in the Congo on the grounds that it's racist was rejected by Swedish authorities earlier today. Prosecturos wrote Jean-Dadou Monya to tell him that the case was not going to be pursued for reasons including the fact that the time for lodging a complaint against publisher Bonnier Carlson had long passed. A Congolese student in Belgium's legal action to have it banned is still being processed.
