Geert Wilders Hate Speech Trial To Continue

A Dutch court has ruled against MP Geert Wilders' attorney's attempt to halt his trial, ruling that charges that the court is biased against the defendant are unfounded. Mr. Wilders' lawyer had alleged that a court official had tried to influence a witness and pushed to bring Mr. Wilders to trial. Mr. Wilders faces charges of hate speech directed at Muslims. More here from Dutch News.
