A Dutch court has rejected a wrongful dismissal lawsuit brought by prominent Muslim scholar Tariq Ramadan, saying the city of Rotterdam had good reasons for ending his contract.

The Swiss-born Ramadan was dismissed from positions at Erasmus University and the city in August 2009 after he hosted a program on Iranian state television. The City of Rotterdam said the appearance could be seen as endorsing the regime in its crackdown on protesters.
