A lawyer for Tayyip Erdogan has filed a complaint about a German decision to drop a case against a comedian accused of offending the Turkish president with an obscene poem, prosecutors said.

The chief prosecutor in Koblenz will review the files on the case and rule on the complaint, the prosecutor's office in the western city of Mainz said on Monday.Prosecutors announced last week they had not found sufficient evidence to suggest any criminal offense had been committed by comedian Jan Boehmermann or anyone else involved in making or broadcasting the piece.
