Ghent: Man swears at tram operator for being White, non-Muslim woman
Via Knack (Dutch):
A 42 year old from Ghent appeared today in court for violating the anti-discrimination law. The man swore at a female tram operator because she was white, female and not a Muslim.
The incident happened last May, on a De Lijn tram next to the Gent-Sint-Pieters station. The 42 year old was aggressive towards the operator for no clear reason. He swore at the woman for being White. He also took offense at the fact that she was a woman and non-Muslim. The other passengers witnessed the incident. The police were called in, but the man refused to be handled by a female agent. The man was ticketed, but refused to pay the fine.
