Injured parties: satisfaction above damage

Dozens of injured parties are satisfied with the verdict in the Wilders-process and call that a remedy, says their lawyer Michiel Pestman.

"We are happy with the basic nature of the ruling," said Pestman, which supports many injured parties who felt hurt by the ' less-Marokkanen'-statements by Geert Wilders. "The Court has rightly ruled that also for a politician as Wilders restrictions to the freedom of expression. Correct minorities are protected by this verdict. "

That his clients not the amount of damages awarded by 500 euro per person get, he calls of less important. "It was not us who do damages. The verdict is sufficient satisfaction for us. "
