Dutch MP court date set for October

The Amsterdam district court has set the date for anti-Islam politician Geert Wilders’ trial for October, after initially scheduling it for June. According to the court, the change is a result of scheduling problems, as the court requires five days to hear evidence in the case. Preliminary schedules mark October 4, 6 and 8 for the trial, followed by a judgment on November 2. The leader of the Freedom Party (PVV) is accused of five counts of religious insult and anti- Muslim incitement.
