30.06.2006 – "Director of satanic concert fined"
According to Polish media Tomasz Dziubi?ski, the owner of the production company Metal Mind Production, has been fined for organizing Gorgoroth's controversial live performance in Krakow 2004. The text below is an English translation of a receent news article from Gazeta.pl (Polish):
"Tomasz Dziubi?ski will have to pay a 10,000 ZLOTY [2,500 EURO] fine for organising a concert where infringement of religious feelings took place. During the gig of the Norwegian band Gorgoroth naked people were hanging on crosses; satanic symbols, the remains of animals as well as fake blood were used in stage design.
The local court of Kraków-Podgórze fined Tomasz Dziubi?ski with 10,000 ZLOTY [2,500] EURO for infringing the religious feelings. The accused will also have to cover the legal expenses of 2,000 ZLOTY [500 EURO]. The court also adjudicated forfeiture of the concert tapes. They will be put in the audiovisual archive of the Jagiellonian Library. […]
The charges named three cameramen as offended by the band's stage design. During the investigation the prosecutors acquired the band's statement, where they claimed to be unaware of the fact that their actions may infringe the religious feelings of Polish people.
According to an expert analysys, prepared by a theologist from Pope's Theologic Academy, the concert's stage design violated the religious feelings of Christians. The symbol of the cross, which was used there with naked bodies on it is an object of particular worship for Christians, and its combination with satanic emblems is obviously offensive for catholics.
During the investigation the accused denied his guilt, stating that he received the final project of the stage design from the band and he had no possibility to alter it. That was also his explanation in the court. […]"
