Justice recognizes the legality of the proposed mosque in Seville

The Islamic Community in Spain may invoke a court ruling to build a mosque in Seville, despite the ruling by the mayor to close the request and file to continue with the project. The dispute surrounds the financial ground for which land to build the mosque may be acquired, and whether or not the Islamic Community in Seville constitutes as a religious institution – thereby exempting them from certain land fees. Lawyers opposing the construction say the case could be in mitigation for two years, while proponents of the mosque are planning to begin construction despite a settled agreement.
