GEERT WILDERS´ HATE SPEECH APPEAL SET FOR OCTOBER

On October 24th and 26th the “pro-forma hearings” are scheduled to take place against PVV leader Geert Wilders. Wilders was indicted of hate speech back in March of 2014 when talking about restraining Moroccan immigration in the Netherlands – No punishment was set.

November 9th is the date on witch the court in Den Hague will proceed to judge the requests.

Wilders is setting a mark on free speech and language policing of the left by calling the last trial “absurd” and “madness”

The court spokesperson agreed by stating:

“The standard is maintained that there is a limit to freedom of expression”

Recent polls conducted in the Netherlands show PVV´s 2nd place win in the Dutch election.
