Cartoonist Prosecuted for an Unpublished Cartoon

GhanemArab Cartoon House reports that Algerian newspaper La voix de l'Oranie is prosecuting cartoonist Jamal Ghanem for a cartoon he never even published:

The cartoon included his view over a dialogue between a "diapers" shop owner and a customer, where the owner said to the customer "For what age do you need diapers?", then the customer replied "The fourth", in reference to the possibility of candidacy by the Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika for a fourth term.
Surprisingly, the cartoon has not been published, while the management of the newspaper found it in cartoonist's archives without being submitted to the editorial department, therefore the newspaper hurried to file the complaint!!

According the cartoonist, the legal action is the result of a labor dispute between him and the newspaper. The newspaper is using the case in an attempt to resolve the dispute in its favor. Read more about this case on the website of Arab Cartoon House.
