Judge’s verdict: Geert Wilders will not be punished

Geert Wilders is guilty of insulting a group of people, but gets no punishment. That’s what the judge decided.

According to the judge, Wilders has already had some kind of punishment, because he has suffered a lot from the things he said. He has to be protected at all times of the day and he can’t just go anywhere.

The trial lasted for years because there was a lot of fuss about it. A judge had already made a decision before, but Wilders didn’t agree. He went to a higher court. Wilders also had judges sent away once, because he thought they were biased.
