The Wilders trial – a travesty of justice

Geert Wilders, the leader of the Party for Freedom [Partij voor de Vrijheid, PVV] in the Netherlands, has been convicted of disparaging a "racial" group - criminal Moroccans.

    After his conviction, Wilders said during a press conference: “The Netherlands has become a corrupt country, where the leader of the opposition in parliament is sentenced in a political trial.” Wilders called the trial and judicial process a farce and said he would appeal to the Supreme Court [Hoge Raad] although the main charge was reduced to guilty without punishment.

    During an election rally in 2014 in Scheveningen, in The Hague, the leader of the Dutch opposition wanted to know if his audience wanted more or fewer “criminal” Moroccans. The audience responded with: “Fewer! Fewer! Fewer!”

    Wilders had never called for unlimited deportation of all Moroccans, but the mainstream media chose to publish fact-free reports on the issue.

    As a result, even the police rallied against Wilders with stations extending their opening hours, so more people could file a complaint of “hate speech” against him. The police provided the public with pre-printed forms as well as translators for those who could not read or write – a way of including illiterate immigrants. Moroccan organisations provided the translators and organised transportation to police stations. Thus the public was invited to condemn the PVV leader.

    The trial opened with one of the judges stating publicly on television that she abhorred Wilders. Her bias against the opposition politician was however so obvious that Wilders’ lawyer succeeded in removing her from the panel.

    A female prosecutor with green hair and a nose ring was allowed to rant on against Wilders without interruption during the trial, while Jeroen de Kreek, told the court about the “pain” Wilders had caused. Both are Dutch-born citizens, not Moroccans. Moroccans, meanwhile, discovered a new legal definition of themselves: They were declared a “race” by the court even though racial categories for the rest of the country have allegedly become obsolete. This enabled them to convict Wilders of “racial discrimination”.

    And when Wilders asked the court to question 25 of the people who had filed a complaint, his request was turned down. His defence also wanted to question senior police officers as to why the police were so active and biased against their client, but it was denied as well.

    The outcome was a fine of €5 000. But Wilders appealed against it. However, his lawyer, for spurious reasons, has since been disbarred for life for improper conduct.

    Wilders now has a criminal record, which could end his political career if he does not lodge an appeal. And he has to find new legal council too.

    The entire process has been an embarrassment to the Dutch justice system. The Moroccans on social media who had publicly said that they wanted to “liquidate” Wilders, “chop off his head, break his nose, kill, murder, stab and put a bullet in his head” do not have to face justice. They have enjoyed unlimited freedom of speech and hospitality.
