28 August 2013

 

The Catalonian government spokesman, Francesc Homs, denied Tuesday that the order of their Department of Interior affairs to create a record of burkas and niqabs violates fundamental rights. “The duty of the police is to know what happens “, said Homs. The procedure is based on the assumption that these garments may constitute an indicator of the emergence of Salafism.
