CAMBRIDGE (AFP) – The student protester accused of throwing a shoe at Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao in Cambridge last week pleaded not guilty to a public order offence Tuesday.

Martin Jahnke, a 27-year-old German student at Cambridge University, spoke only to confirm his name and address, and to enter his plea at the city's magistrates' court. His case was adjourned until March 10.

On Tuesday Jahnke -- wearing a black suit, a blue shirt and black slip-on shoes -- was given unconditional bail. He was told that if he did not appear in court next month he would be committing an imprisonable offence.

I think he should say sorry to Chinese Premier and regret over what he has done in public. But I haven't seen any sign by now.

Lucky fellow he didn't do the shoe throwing in Iraq ..

Al-Zaidi appeared before a judge (not in court but in jail over fears that his injuries could cause anger amongst the public if he was to appear in court)[citation needed] on December 16, 2008, and admitted "aggression against a president." The court decided to keep him in custody. A spokesman for the Iraqi court said that al-Zaidi would face charges of attacking a head of state.[95] Dheyaa al-Saadi, the head of the Iraqi Bar Association and one of its most high-profile attorneys, said that he had volunteered to defend al-Zaidi.[96] Judge Dhiya al-Kenani said the court had refused the journalist's request for bail "for the sake of the investigation and for his own security".[97] According to Abdul Satar Birqadr, spokesman for Iraq's High Judicial Council, al-Zaidi is charged with "assaulting a foreign head of state visiting Iraq."[9

He should probably write an apology to Wen; Wen, for his part, has been a good sport about the whole matter.
