In­vite with­drawn

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS -

UCT has with­drawn its in­vi­ta­tion to Dan­ish jour­nal­ist Flem­ming Rose, the ed­i­tor re­spon­si­ble for print­ing car­toon images of the prophet Muhammed in a news­pa­per in 2005.

The jour­nal­ist, who was at the cen­tre of a pub­lish­ing saga which caused boy­cotts of the Dan­ish publi­ca­tion Jyl­lands-Posten, was set to be the speaker at the TB Davie Memo­rial Lec­ture.

Yes­ter­day univer­sity spokes­woman Gerda Kruger said in a state­ment they had given “care­ful and ex ten­sive thought” to the de­ci­sion.
