Geert Wilders’ Witness List Cut Down To Three In Medieval Amsterdam Trial


The fix is in at the Amsterdam Criminal Court.  Today, the Judges hearing the Inciting to Hatred trial (read that: No more political free speech in the Netherlands – ever) of Dutch Parliamentarian Geert Wilders slashed the number of witnesses he may call to testify in his defense from 18 to three.  It’s all right [...]
