Dutch MP Geert Wilders ‘can challenge’ Islam hate trial

17 02 2011

From the BBC:

Dutch anti-Islam MP Geert Wilders has been granted the right to challenge the charges against him of inciting hatred.

The ruling was made by a new panel of judges appointed after the initial trial collapsed in October when Mr Wilders complained of bias against him.

Mr Wilders’ lawyer will now be given a chance to set out the objections he made at the start of the initial trial.

One of the judges told the court on Monday that if the objections were successful, “the case will be closed”.
