Court to rule on Wilders’ ‘racism’ today

Amsterdam’s appeal court will decide today if Geert Wilders, an MP and leader of the anti-immigration party PVV, should be prosecuted for discrimination and inciting racial hatred, De Pers reports on Wednesday.

The public prosecution department has received dozens of complaints about Wilders’ anti-Islam film Fitna and his statements in the media. At the end of June last year the department said it did not have enough grounds to prosecute him.
