The Foreigner Demonstration fears sent Oslo bookstore staff home. Staff at publisher Cappelen Damm’s bookshop was told to leave work early yesterday following police warnings of demonstrations against the controversial “Tyranny of silence” release. “We can confirm our personnel were sent home for security reasons,” CEO Tom Harald Jensen told NRK. Danish journalist Flemming Rose’s book “Taushetens Tyranni”, first published last year, “contains cartoons that blaspheme the name of the Islamic prophet”, the Tajik Foreign Ministry wrote in its letter to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon last month, asking for intervention against yesterday’s reissue.

Staff at publisher Cappelen Damm’s bookshop was told to leave work early yesterday following police warnings of demonstrations against the controversial “Tyranny of silence” release.



“We can confirm our personnel were sent home for security reasons,” CEO Tom Harald Jensen told NRK.

Danish journalist Flemming Rose’s book “Taushetens Tyranni”, first published last year, “contains cartoons that blaspheme the name of the Islamic prophet”, the Tajik Foreign Ministry wrote in its letter to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon last month, asking for intervention against yesterday’s reissue. 

The cartoons sparked outcry and violent Muslim demonstrations in 2008, as well as condemnation and reprisals against Aftenposten and Dagbladet last year following their decision to reprint them.
