The Hague – Far-right Dutch lawmaker Geert Wilders who made a controversial film likening Islam to Nazism will travel to London Friday after a British tribunal upheld his appeal against an entry ban, his spokeswoman said.
Wilders "will hold talks with Lord Malcolm Pearson about rescheduling his February meeting with the House of Lords" -- where he had been due to screen his anti-Islam film Fitna, Gaelle de Graaff said Wednesday.
The Freedom Party leader had been invited by Pearson to screen his film in the House of Lords, Britain's unelected upper chamber of parliament, in February.
Wilders' spokeswoman said he would "travel to London on Friday morning and return the same day".
He was sent back to the Netherlands on a plane shortly after being detained by immigration officials on arrival at London's Heathrow airport on 12 February.
