Ministry of Justice censors prisoner for fear of offending Osama Bin Laden
Cartoon censored from UK prisoners magazine Inside Time for upsetting Muslim prisoners, 2009
From Hull Daily Mail (late edition) In Brief (not online)
Prison paper stopped
Hull: Almost 50,000 copies of a prisoner newspaper have been pulled from jails across the country after Muslim clerics complained about an article written by a Hull inmate.
Andy Thackwray wrote the latest installment of Angry Andy in the Inside Time newspaper.
It was a satrical piece that called the international swine flu outbreaks as a botched Al-Qaeda terrorism plot - and carried with it cartoon of Osama Bin Laden with swine flu.
However, after several complaints were made by Imams from across the country, the Director General of the National Offender Management Service, Phil Wheatley, asked for the edition to be pulled.
