The German news channel NTV is reporting that Geert Wilders is expected to be acquitted of the hate speech/heresy charges that have been laid against him. It says that even the state prosecutors have asked for him to be acquitted, saying his actions were not crimes in the Netherlands and they didn't really want to bring the case anyway but were pressured into it! The prosecutors made the point that because Wilders' statements had been directed against Islam as a system of ideas rather than Muslims as people, they did not constitute punishable offences.

However, given the proven bias of some of the judges in the case, I don't think we can completely rule out the possibility that they will do something crazy and convict him anyway even against the wishes of the state prosecutors.

To Mr. Cheradenine Zakalwe:

Well if what you say happens ... it will be the irrefutable proof that Geert Wilders is absolutely right about the dangers of Islamization of the Netherlands, and our country will be submitted to the fanaticism of this draconian ideology where freedom of thought and speech is abolished.
It is shameful that for Dutch courts to act in complicity with those facts.
