Bob Dylan In Hot Water In France

PARIS (December 3, 2013) French authorities have filed preliminary charges against Bob Dylan stemming from an interview in 2012 in which he is quoted comparing Croatians to Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan.

The charges of "public insult and inciting hate" were filed in mid-November, the prosecutor’s office said.

The charges stemmed from a lawsuit by a Croatian community group in France over an interview in Rolling Stone magazine.

A lawyer for the group says they are not seeking monetary damages but only want the legendary singer to apologize to the Croatian people for the comments.

He did not say why they filed the case in France, which has strict laws punishing hate speech and racist remarks.
