The trial of Geert Wilders has now been adjourned to a date to be fixed, the date being fixed by the Court!
This trial, although being held in Holland, has far greater effects on the rest of Europe than may first be realised. This is actually a trial against free-speech. Whether you agree with what Mr Wilders says or not, for the record I do, is not the issue, it is his entitlement to say it that is on trial.
He has had 15 of his 18 witnesses disallowed and the Court’s reason for that is incredible “The Court accepts what your witnesses will say is the truth..... But the truth itself is wrong”. How can the truth be wrong? What they mean to say is “Yes; everything you say about Islam is correct but we (the authorities) do not want everyone to know it”.
The roads outside the Court are packed with members of the public supporting Mr Wilders, Holland has a General Election looming, the Court have done everything in their power to gag Mr Wilders and his witnesses and now the “Establishment” are panicking because they know they have overstepped the mark and this could just push the election Mr Wilders way.
A very good piece on the trial can be viewed here

Refusing to accept the truth?

Seems like they've been taking lessons from CCBC on how to conduct Court Hearings...

Why was it telling the truth.
