Imam to sue Wilders

Imam Fawaz Jneid, who has been described as a radical cleric, is suing Geert Wilders, maker of the anti-Quran film _Fitna,’ for EUR 55,000 in damages, claiming that Wilders damaged his reputation. Jneid was featured in Wilders’ film, and claims that he was unjustly portrayed as being connected to extremism and terrorism, damaging his good name and honor. In addition, a photo of him was used in the film without the imam’s permission. Wilders dismissed the claim.
