Rock star Bob Dylan will go to court in Paris over inciting racism, a group of Croat immigrants in France confirms after reporting the star to the court.

We still don't know whether Bob Dylan will appear in person or will send a lawyer to represent him," Vlatko Maric, the representative of Council of Croatian Community in France has revealed to daily newspaper Slobodna Dalmacija.
Bob Dylan has been reported for inciting racism after he gave an interview to Rolling Stone in which he put Croatians in the same category as the Nazis and the Klu Klux Klan.
Representatives from of the Council of Croats in France, the CRICCF, said that the comments had been an insult to Croats the world over and Bob Dylan had been reported to French officials with a view to him being charged with racism.
The publisher of the French edition of the Rolling Stone magazine that carried the interview from the English version has also been reported.
"He was without any doubt inciting hatred against Croatians", Vlatko Maric revealed.
