Public prosecutors have 'invited' PVV leader Geert Wilders for questioning in connection with remarks he made about Moroccans last year and consider him to be a formal suspect, the department said on Thursday.
The department said in a statement Wilders is 'suspected of having insulted a population group with respect to their race and of incitement to discrimination and hatred'.
The investigation goes back to the local elections last March. During a post vote meeting with supporters in The Hague, Wilders asked the crowd 'and do you want more or fewer Moroccans in your city and in the Netherlands?' To which the crowd chanted 'fewer, fewer, fewer'.
