Anti-Islam Wilders fears extradition in another country
Anti-Islam Dutch Geert Wilders met Dutch Foreign Minister Maxime Verhagen regarding Jordan's decision to charge Wilders with incitement against Islam, news reports said Thursday.

'I am not at all comfortable about the situation,' the far-right leader of the Dutch Freedom Party said Thursday, a day after talking with Verhagen.

Wilders had requested the meeting to discuss the consequences of a Jordan public prosecutor's decision to charge him over his anti-Islam film Fitna, released late March.

The group that calls itself the Messenger of Allah United Us, pressed charges against Wilders in Jordan.

Wilders said he and Verhagen discussed whether it was likely that another country that he might visit would extradite him to Jordan.

Theoretically, Jordan could file an extradition application through Interpol to a country that Wilders might visit.
