German comedian could face jail for insulting Erdogan

(The Local) Germany’s hippest young comedian faces a jail sentence of up to five years if Turkey decides to press charges over a poem he wrote insulting its head of state.

Jan Böhmermann knew what he was doing when he read out a self-penned poem insulting Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan live on his late night show on Thursday evening.

He introduced the piece by speaking directly to the Turkish president.
