Update: Moroccan Imam Does Not Apply for Dutch Visa

20 December 2011


A Moroccan Imam invited to speak at a conference in Amsterdam did not apply for a visa to enter the country, according to the Telegraaf. Politicians had condemned the invitation and called for his entry to the country to be banned, when it was revealed that the Imam had supported a marriageable age of nine for girls. Foreign minister Uri Rosenthal said that there is now no longer sufficient time for a visa to be granted even if he did apply.
