German comedian Jan Boehmermann will appeal a court-issued injunction that bans him from reciting parts of a poem that insulted Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
His lawyer, Christian Schertz, says a Hamburg court's decision to issue an injunction is "blatantly wrong," is based on "technical errors" and that his client will seek to appeal it.
Schertz adds that he will petition the Hamburg court to impose a four-week deadline on Erdogan to prepare for a court case and that he will push for a decision from the Constitutional Court if necessary.
