10. SOUNDBITE (French) David de Stefano/Lawyer for Dieudonne:
"The hearing lasted almost five and a half hours. It's complicated to sum it up but I believe that my client tried to express his feeling and not an act of will by saying 'I'm a humorist but I've been treated as a terrorist'. I believe that what has happened in the past six months, with 81 procedures against him, proves it. It is legitimate for him to feel harassed."

Controversial French comic Dieudonne M'bala M'bala went on trial in Paris on Wednesday (4 FEB. 2015) charged with "defending terrorism" in a Facebook post made after the three-day terror spree in the French capital last month.
The comic, known by his stage name Dieudonne, made a Facebook posting which said "I feel like Charlie Coulibaly."
The post, which has since been taken down, merges the names of Charlie Hebdo, the satirical magazine where two gunmen killed 12 people, and that of Amedy Coulibaly, who prosecutors say killed four hostages at a kosher supermarket and a policewoman.
All three gunmen were killed in nearly simultaneous raids by security forces on 9 January.
Dieudonne has multiple convictions for hate speech and has faced allegations of anti-Semitism for a gesture he popularized that many say mimics a Nazi salute.
