Finnish Politician with Doctoral Degree on trial

Another one of those cases where freedom of speech is put the the test when it should not be.

*From The international Free Press Society.

In Helsinki a Politician has been charged with incitement of hatred against an ethnic group and defamation of religion. In March the deputy prosecutor formally charged Jussi Halla-aho with allegedly racist, anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim comments made on his blog in June 2008.
The article however does not indicate what he published, or if anyone actually made a complaints.
