At the beginning of the year the world faced massive protests accompanied by escalating violence over the publication of controversial caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad. Once the fury subsided we all took a deep breath of relief. But now the history is repeating itself. Only this time the outcome might be fatal, at least for five Bulgarian nurses. A Bulgarian newspaper decided to make clear its position over the long and painful trial against the five Bulgarian nurses, who have spent seven years in jail without a conviction. So far so good - we all have the right to speak our mind especially on World Press Freedom Day. But unfortunately, in my opinion they picked the wrong time and way of doing it. The new caricatures might cause more harm than expected, as the wound is still raw after the February uproar. I know that we have every right to be upset over the Libyan trial especially over the "quiet diplomacy" but still, these caricatures are not the solution. Because they cast a shadow on the re-trial that is set to begin on May 11. Especially when there are promises for quick and positive end of the re-trial and we all hope to see the nurses back home really soon.
