On Friday Anti-Islam Dutch MP Geert Wilders was found guilty of inciting racial discrimination in the Netherlands. Wilders was found guilty of inciting racial discrimination for leading a chant calling for fewer Moroccans in the Netherlands. The presiding Judge Hendrik Steenhuis said the court would not impose a sentence because the conviction was punishment enough for a democratically elected lawmaker. Prosecutors had asked the judges to fine him 5,000 euros (£4,200).

Wilders responded to the conviction saying in part:

“I still cannot believe it, but I have been convicted because I asked a question about Moroccans. The Netherlands has become a sick country. The judge who convicted me [has] restricted the freedom of speech for millions of Dutch. I will never be silent. I am not a racist and neither are my voters.”
