'The court had used a Supreme Court ruling -- that an offensive statement about someone's religion was not a criminal offence -- as the basis of its decision, leading to acquittal, the judge said.' http://in.reuters.com/article/2011/0...57870320110623
Hip hip bloody hooray. Not particularly a fan of Wilders myself but this court ruling is correct in my opinion.
The reason I applaud the decision is because of the principle behind it- no-one has the right to have unsubstantiated personal beliefs free from questioning or criticism and this court is right on the button in my opinion and whether it is Wilders or a cartoonist or an Islamic preacher commenting on christianity or the west is irrelevant to me.
The Dutch yet again show their level headedness.
