Court says no change of judges in Dutch MP's trial

AMSTERDAM, Oct 5 (Reuters) - A Dutch court rejected on Tuesday a request from anti-Islam politician Geert Wilders, who has a pivotal role in forming a new government, to have new judges for his trial on charges of inciting hatred.

Wilders had asked the court on Monday to replace the judges because of concerns about their potential bias after the presiding judge said Wilders appeared to be avoiding discussion again by invoking his right to silence.
