AMSTERDAM – The government has looked into whether the anti-Koran film from Geert Wilders can be banned before its release. Sources closed to the cabinet have confirmed this, the Telegraaf reports.
The government prosecutor has investigated whether there are legal grounds to prevent the film from being released.
Taking the matter to court would not be entirely hopeless, in light of the threats from abroad, the Telegraaf reports. A ban would come upon opposition from Labour PvdA however.
