PVV plan flops: Labour leaders won't face trial for anti-Moroccan comments
Efforts by the anti-immigration PVV to have Labour party leader Diederik Samsom and party chairman Hans Spekman prosecuted for discriminatory remarks about young Dutch Moroccans have failed.
Judges in Amsterdam said the complaints about the comments by PVV senator Marjolein Faber and MEP Marcel de Graaff were invalid because neither was directly affected.
PVV leader Geert Wilders called for supporters to complain about the Labour leadership after thousands of protests were lodged about his own anti-Moroccan comments in 2014. Wilders' trial for discrimination and inciting hatred will begin this autumn.
