Geert Wilders Releases Statement in Support of Tommy Robinson: “Lights of Freedom Going Out All Over Europe”

UK activist Tommy Robinson was arrested on Friday for suspicion of breaching the peace while livestreaming a report on the trial of a  child grooming gang. He was immediately sentenced to serve 13 months in prison.

Friends and supporters of Robinson, 35, say his notoriety and stance on Islam places his life in great danger in prison.

According to UK independent reporter Caolan Robertson, Robinson was arrested outside the Leeds Crown Court where ten men are on trial for offenses including child rape, trafficking, and supply of class A drugs to children.

For this Tommy Robinson was jailed for 13 months on Friday.

Dutch politician Geert Wilders came to Tommy’s defense on Friday.

Geert, who has been threatened by violent Islamists for several years, called on the UK to “come to your senses” and release Tommy before he is murdered in prison.

Geert Wilders posted a video in defense of Tommy on Monday from outside the British Embassy in The Hague.

Wilders calls Tommy’s jailing “an absolute disgrace” and states “freedom of speech is being violated all over Europe.”

Here is a transcript of Geert’s comments.
