Wilders loses appeal, will go on trial
Koran ban man Geert Wilders has lost his appeal to the Supreme Court, and will definitely go on trial on charges of inciting hatred and causing insult to Muslims.
On the surface, he does not seem to be happy about this:
It is a political trial. I am being prosecuted for saying about Islam what millions of Dutch people think. Freedom of speech is in danger of being sacrificed on the altar of Islam.
We suspect he is secretly quite pleased.
It will be an interesting trial.
