Lars Hedegaard, former chairman and founder of the Danish Free Press Society, is acquitted of all charges against him for breaking Danish anti-racism laws.

In 2007 Hedegaard stated in an interview that Muslims "rape their own children. It is heard of all the time. Girls in Muslim families are raped by their uncles, their cousins or their fathers."

Lars Hedegaard also said:

"Whenever it is prudent for a Muslim to hide his true intentions by lying or making a false oath in his own or in Islam 's service, then it is ok to do it."

Hedegard has been defended by some, but even his defenders have admitted that at best he expressed his ideas badly. Many others are highly critical and Hedegaard must step down from his position with the Danish Free Press Society.

An official police complain was filed by Yilmaz Evcil, vice-chairman in the Integration Council in Aarhus Municipality, which led to the trial.
