Wilders to Speak in Australia, Visa Pending

20 September 2012

 

An anti-Islam group in Australia has invited Dutch politician Geert Wilders to speak next month, however authorities have not yet approved his visa application. The Q Society is suggesting that Australia is attempting to prevent Wilders from speaking in the country, while Australian immigration minister Chris Bouwen defends the time taken to process the application. While one member of the Australian Green Party is quoted as saying Wilders is not welcome in the country, he adds that denying the politician a visa would simply bring more attention to Wilders.
