Bob Dylan has been placed under judicial investigation in France for allegedly provoking ethnic hatred of Croats.
It follows a legal complaint lodged by a Croat association in France over a 2012 interview Dylan gave to Rolling Stone magazine.
In the interview he allegedly compared the relationship between Jews and Nazis to that of Serbs and Croats.
The singer, 72, was served notice of the investigation last month.
At the time he was in Paris to receive the Legion of Honour, a prestigious French award.
In the Rolling Stone interview, Bob Dylan was sharing his thoughts about US history and the country’s racial divide.
He is reported to have said: “Blacks know that some whites didn’t want to give up slavery – that if they had their way, they would still be under the yoke, and they can’t pretend they don’t know that.
“If you got a slave master or [Ku Klux] Klan in your blood, blacks can sense that. That stuff lingers to this day. Just like Jews can sense Nazi blood and the Serbs can sense Croatian blood.”
During World War Two, the Croat Ustashe fascist movement killed hundreds of thousands of Serbs, Jews, Roma and others in their death camps.
Croats and Serbs also fought each other during the break-up of Yugoslavia in the 1991-1995 war that left around 20,000 people dead.
After the interview was published, the Council of Croats in France (CRICCF) filed a complaint.

It is an historical facts, that Croatia was a Roman Catholic Nazi-puppet regime during World War II. 86 per cent of the Croats are still Roman Catholics.
By saying so, you might hurt the “religious sentiments” of the Catholics, since they want to bless their former Nazi-hero in their religious shrines. But this is an historical fact.
Just like Norway was a Nazi-puppet regime, Croatia was a Nazi-puppet. The Norwegians might not like to be compared to the Croats, and might take offense if someone claims the Norwegian views on Israel today would even have pleased Quisling.
This is the truth.
That a court in Catholic France is used to persecute Bob Dylan for telling the truth, is yet another examples of Europe leaving its roots of freedom of expression. To please the Papacy, he Catholic-Nazi nexus must be denied at any cost. Just like the Islamic-Nazi nexus.
Such is the nature of evil.
