In a book to be released on Monday, titled “De besatte” (“The obsessed”), Flemming Rose accuses the paper’s management of hypocrisy, claiming it backed him in public while doing everything it could to silence him in private.
“The drama and tragedy is that the only ones who have won are the jihadists,” he told the weekly Weekendavisen newspaper.
Rose said that rules for what he could say and write about the controversial cartoons and related subjects had been outlined in a 2011 agreement proposed by former editor-in-chief Jørn Mikkelsen, the former chief executive of the company that owned the paper, Lars Munch, and the company’s former chairman Jørgen Ejbøl.
