Strong reactions to Wilders guilty verdict on inciting racial discrimination
Strong reactions have erupted after far-right wing politician Geert Wilders was found guilty of inciting racial discrimination against Dutch Moroccans in a court on Friday.
Wilders was condemned for his actions leading a PVV party rally calling for 'fewer, fewer' Moroccans in March 2014 – and now has a criminal record – but he received no punishment from the three judges.
The leader of the PVV, currently leading in some polls prior to general elections in March, did not attend most of the trial or verdict. But he frequently tweeted about hearings in what he called the 'fake court' – conduct the judge said was 'unworthy' of a politician.
