Judge rules in favor of the Lleida City Hall in the closing of the In Hazm Mosque

08 June 2012

The contentious administrative Court of Lleida declared as final the decision taken by the City Hall of Lleida in the summer of 2010 to temporarily close the Mosque In Hazm, for exceeding the permitted capacity and endanger the safety of the faithful followers.

The police agents had estimated that the number of people attending the Mosque was always over the maximum capacity, therefore placing the believers in danger. The temporary decision of the Leida authorities to close the Mosque based on the police investigation was now ruled as definite by the Court. The Muslim Representatives presented no appeal to the closing of their local of praying.
