Committee Report: Judges Were Poorly Prepared for Wilders Trial

The Meijerink Commission has made a report of the organization of the court case against Geert Wilders, the leader of the Freedom Party. The report says that the judges were insufficiently prepared for the pressure which resulted from the major media attention to the trial. The judges were also insufficiently aware that their behavior would be analyzed according to whether they were politically prejudiced. Ultimately at the request of Wilders’ lawyer, another panel of judges dismissed the court and the trial will be redone with a new court.
