The court in Amsterdam largely acquitted Jelle Brandt Corstius of defamation on Wednesday. The court does not think that the 44-year-old has been guilty of libel against TV producer Gijs van Dam in the newspaper ‘Trouw’. The Public Prosecution Service has demanded a suspended community service of 60 hours. The journalist is not present at the verdict, which the court calls a pity. He will not be punished for two statements that the court finds libelous.
