The verdict in Geert Wilders’ trial for inciting hatred will be announced two days later than originally planned, the Amsterdam court said on Friday.
The leader of the PVV anti-Islam party faces five charges of religious insult and anti-Muslim incitement in the trial, which begins on Monday. The court says it needs seven days to hear the evidence.
The original date for the verdict was November 2, the day on which film maker Theo van Gogh was killed in 2004 by a muslim extremist. But the court denies this is the reason, reports the Telegraaf.
