The Canadian Press: Hate speech trial of Dutch anti-Islam lawmaker ends with defence, prosecution in agreement

Hate speech trial of Dutch anti-Islam lawmaker ends with defence, prosecution in agreement

By The Associated Press – 3 days ago

AMSTERDAM — Anti-Islam lawmaker Geert Wilders’ defence has rested its case at his hate speech trial, calling for his acquittal in the name of free speech, justice and democracy.

Wilders is accused of inciting hatred and discrimination against Muslims with remarks including some comparing the Qur’an to Adolf Hitler’s “Mein Kampf.”

Prosecutors, who were ordered to take on the case unwillingly, have also called for acquittal. They say Wilders’ remarks may offend Muslims, but they are part of political debate and protected by freedom of speech laws.

Defence lawyer Bram Moszkowicz quipped Monday he had never before seen a trial where the defence could have adopted the prosecution’s arguments.

Judges could still convict Wilders, however. A verdict has yet to be scheduled for late June.

  • Yet Another Unlicensed Contractor Debacle 2017/07/10
    This story is late in publishing because the AOC (ahem, the judicial council) spent months drawing out our requests for information on a simple inquiry they should have been able to deliver on the same day it was received because what scant information they did provide was readily available to them. But they dragged out […]

  • Another Clifford Ham boondoggle in San Diego 2017/04/19
    More false promises of tunnels reaching out from jails to courthouses. Don’t say we didn’t tell you so because we’ve stated many times that ALL tunnel promises are false promises made to win local support of the projects and penciled out upon approval. What we find most disturbing is that Clifford Ham has a track […]

    Welcome to 2017! Yeah, we know, a bit of time has passed since we’ve been hyperactive here.

  • Welcome to the first business day of our reinvigorated 10 year run! 2017/01/02
    Thanks to the sheer incompetence of Judicial Council staff leadership, we’re going to be spending the next ten years nipping at their heels. Last week, the San Francisco trial court ruled that the Jacobs entities maintained their contractors license and that the 22.7 million that the Judicial Council should have been able to recover is […]
