Dutch MP Wilders questioned Moroccans' 'right to exist'
by Jan Hennop
Dutch anti-Islam MP Geert Wilders insulted Moroccans by questioning their very right to exist with hate-filled comments at a rally, his trial heard on Wednesday.
Laying out their case for the first time, prosecutors addressed the trial at a high-security courthouse near Schiphol airport which has been snubbed by the far-right politician.
Wilders, 53, is facing charges of insulting a racial group and inciting racial hatred after comments he made about Moroccans living in the Netherlands.
Due to run until November 25, the trial focuses on a 2014 election rally when Wilders asked supporters whether they wanted "fewer or more Moroccans" in the country.
