An anti-monarchy campaigner is being taken to court for insulting the Dutch royal family at a rally in Amsterdam in 2014. Abulkasim al-Jaberi was arrested at a demonstration against Zwarte Piet for shouting ‘fuck the king, fuck the queen and fuck the monarchy’.

After refusing to accept an out of court deal involving a €500 fine, al-Jaberi is due to appear in court in Amsterdam on 27 May 2015.

His arrest was captured on film by local broadcaster AT5.
