PVV leader Geert Wilders will be prosecuted for inciting hatred
The public prosecution department is to take anti-Islam party leader Geert Wilders to court for discrimination and encouraging hatred after he led supporters in an anti-Moroccan chant at a post-election meeting.
'Politicians can go far in what they say, that is part of freedom of speech. But the freedom is limited by the ban on discrimination,' the short prosecution department statement said.
The department said in October it was investigating Wilders and formally questioned him on December 8.
