Wilders calls conviction is ‘insanity’, against ‘half the Netherlands’

AMSTERDAM (Reuters) – Dutch anti-Islam politician Geert Wilders said his conviction on Friday of insulting a group and inciting discrimination was "insanity" and said the three judges who handed down the ruling were "haters" of his far-right Freedom Party (PVV). "Three PVV-hating judges declare Moroccans a race and convict me and half of the Netherlands. Insane," he wrote in a tweet shortly after the verdict.
