Verdict in Hate Trial for Dutch Politician Postponed

October 1 2010

The verdict in Geert Wilders’ trial for inciting hatred is to be postponed by two days, the Amsterdam court has announced. The verdict was originally scheduled for November 2, the anniversary of the murder of filmmaker Theo van Gogh in 2004 by a Muslim extremist, though the court denies that the anniversary is the reason for postponing the verdict.
