Geert Wilders Prosecuted For 'Inciting Hatred'
Dutch far-right politician Geert Wilders has hit out at the decision to prosecute him on charges of inciting racial hatred, calling it a "travesty".It comes after the anti-Islam MP pledged to ensure there were "fewer Moroccans" in the Netherlands. Speaking at a rally in March following local elections, he asked his supporters if they wanted "fewer or more Moroccans in your city and in the Netherlands?" When the crowd shouted "Fewer! Fewer!" a smiling Mr Wilders answered: "We're going to organise that." The remark led to 6,400 legal complaints being lodged across the Netherlands, and there was even criticism from within Wilders' own Party for Freedom, which currently leads opinion polls. Prosecutors said Mr Wilders faces a trial "on charges of insulting a group of people based on race and incitement to discrimination and hatred". They added: "Politicians may go far in their statements, that's part of freedom of expression, but this freedom is limited by the prohibition of discrimination."
