Wilders appeals against UK ban

21st March 2009, Comments 0 comments

Freedom Party leader Geert Wilders has launched an official appeal against the British government's decision to ban him.

LONDON - Last month, Britain's Home Office refused the MP entry on the grounds that his opinions about Islam made him a threat to public security.

Geert Wilders had been invited to screen his film Fitna at the House of Lords by Lord Pearson of Britain's Independence Party.

Upon arrival at London's Heathrow airport, the far-right MP was denied entry to the UK and sent back to the Netherlands.

Wilders has appealed to the Asylum and Immigration Tribunal to reverse the decision. He will be notified of the date for the hearing in 28 days time.
