Official verdict court: Conviction Joke Kaviaar on charges of incitement

Haarlem, 22-1-2013

On January 22 2013 the court of Noord-Holland has convicted a 49 year old woman to a 4 months prison sentence on charges of repeatedly inciting criminal offenses, through the use of writings and pictures.

Although a police report was made more than three months after the appearance of two texts written by the defendant, the court does not think that the interests of the defendant have been harmed. After all, there has only been a small lapse of time and the police report is sufficiently reliable.

Closing Speech Joke: Each word a spark!

(Audio recording at the court in dutch)

Each word a spark!

The Public Prosecution thinks it has the right to prosecute me on charges of what it calls ‘incitement’. In fact they are persecuting me because of my opinion, because of my written attacks on the destruction machine that is called immigration policy.

NHD29.12.12In an article published in the newspaper, Noord Hollands Dagblad, dated December 29, 2012 a spokesman of the National Prosecutors Office said about their case against me: “We find it most of all important that she stands trial and has to answer herself for her words.” So, for words… Words that I will not take back. The same spokesman also said: “The defendant seems to have done nothing to make sure that her website would disappear.”

Today again it becomes more than obvious: the National Prosecutors Office wants me to censor myself, since they can not: “It is going to be difficult to prevent such mirror websites.” as was said in Noord Hollands Dagblad. Power feels powerless, so it is intent on revenge.

The Public Prosecution will do everything to dispose this trial of its political character. Continue reading “Closing Speech Joke: Each word a spark!” »

Sentence demanded in political trial against Joke Kaviaar not astonishing and calls for resistance!

A response by Joke Kaviaar to the demand of the prosecution in the political trial of January 8, 2013

wheels_of_justice

During the political trial against me, the prosecutor demanded a six months prison sentence for what she calls ‘incitement’. Is that a lot? Yes. Is that an outrage? Yes. Was it to be expected? Yes.

The public prosecution, represented by prosecutor Gerda Visser, proved itself very predictable in the requisitory. Her story was built up around RARA (Revolutionary Anti-Racist Action), the attack on the house of Aad Kosto in 1991 and, as she (or rather the AIVD’s report ‘The Fire of Resistance’ she quoted) put it, the growing resistance over the past few years against the ‘asylum’ policy.

‘A breeding ground for extremism’ is what the articles that I write are, according to the prosecutor. Continue reading “Sentence demanded in political trial against Joke Kaviaar not astonishing and calls for resistance!” »

Another free speech trial in the Netherlands: Joke Kaviaar

(from blog.yellow-stars.com)

Free Speech for Geert Wilders but not Joke. We now see the start of a “criminal trial” in the Netherlands against Joke Kaviaar – an anarchist and activist against the nature and manner of Dutch immigration policy. This young lady is an activist for refugees and for open boarders. She is on trial for what she said on her blog and has been told that so as long as certain posts remain up – she is “inciting” and “violating the law!”

Keep in mind that the Netherlands claims to be an advocate for free speech on the Internet. And – as I have argued in the past this is a double standard, as the Netherlands is all in favor of “free speech” for Iranians, Chinese and the extreme and radical right – the Netherlands is working to criminalize speech from the far-left, the vast majority are non-violent speakers like Joke. We have also seen people punished for speech that is taken as “threatening Wilders.”
