Amsterdam: Sharia court now in session
The De Balie center in Amsterdam is organizing a Sharia court session
for the public as part of their 'Justice for All' series. The court is
supposed to give people insight into the workings of Sharia law.
Sharia courts in the Netherlands are a nightmare for many Dutch.
Meanwhile, they're already popping up in the UK and Canada. Is it

bring cases before the court. The case would then be settled by
authorized Sharia judges. (...)
