AMSTERDAM - The Dutch government refused to ban a key parliamentary ally's website inviting the public to post complaints about Poles and other east Europeans despite widespread criticism at home and abroad, including from the European Commission.

A Dutch government spokesman said the website, set up by Geert Wilders' Freedom Party was a matter for the party.

The party (PVV) gives the Liberal-Christian Democrat coalition a majority and its popularity has grown on the back of its tough stance on immigrants, notably Muslims but also from European countries, including EU members such as Poland.

The European Commission condemned the website, saying it ran against European principles of freedom of movement.
