Bankruptcy threatens PVV
Geert Wilders’ party will go bankrupt if he is to be prosecuted for sowing hatred and discrimination.
The costs of lawyers will exceed what the PVV has, said Geert Wilders in a response on the decision of the court to prosecute him. “We cannot afford the tons of money this will cost us” according to Wilders, whose party does not receive government subsidies, today in De Telegraaf.
According to two law professors, Wilders has already been convicted, even though he has yet to stand trial. The court already indicated ‘sowing of hatred’ is applicable. The chance that a lower court will decide differently, and consequently that Wilders is not guilty, is questioned by these two authorities.
