Date set for Wilders court case

The court case against MP Geert Wilders, who faces discrimination and inciting hatred charges, will begin on October 4 in Amsterdam district court. The court says it needs five days to hear evidence in the case. The court will pass sentence on November 2.

The MP faces five charges of religious insult and anti-Muslim incitement. In January, the public prosecution department extended the prosecution case to include inciting hatred of Muslims, Moroccans and non-Western immigrants.
