Geert Wilders

With a big hat tip to the Gates of Vienna blog!! (Also see their detailed updates to this story here, here, here, and here.)

For the last few days, the prosecutors in the free speech trial of Dutch politician Geert Wilders have been arguing for his acquittal on at least one of the counts against him. But now reports are coming out of the Netherlands saying that the prosecution is calling for his acquittal on all charges:

The Dutch Public Prosecutor has sought the acquittal of anti-Islam MP Geert Wilders on all three charges against him. Earlier this week, the prosecution asked for an acquittal for the charge of insulting Muslims and asked the judges not to award damages to the plaintiffs. Today, the prosecution asked for an acquittal on the two remaining charges: inciting hatred and discrimination.
