French comedian barred from Hong Kong E-mail

Controversial French comedian Dieudonne M’bala M’bala, who arrived in Hong Kong on 28 January to perform two stand-up comedy shows, was expelled from Hong Kong a day after being detained, and his shows were cancelled. His two sons, one a minor, were also detained.

Dieudonne, who has been convicted seven times in France for inciting racial hatred against Jews, posted photos of the incident on his official Facebook page. In a later post, he said he had been detained for 15 hours, and blamed it on “pressure by Israel”. He returned to Paris via Thailand on the same day.

In November last year, a Belgian court sentenced Dieudonne to two months in jail for racist and anti-Semitic comments during a show there.
