A woman whose headscarf became entangled in a go-kart is suing the Linnaeushof playground in Bennebroek, the Netherlands. The woman visited the playground in 2007 on an outing of an Islamic association, and claims that the Linnaeushof’s insufficient safety measures and supervision led to the accident and injury, for which she was taken to the hospital.
A man has been barred from all municipal buildings in Hoogezand-Sappemeer for one year, after aggressively insulting an employee wearing a headscarf. The man refused to be helped by a woman wearing a headscarf and spoke to her with “discrimination and contempt”. When an invitation for dialogue failed, the municipal council decided to ban the man for one year from municipal buildings in an effort to make clear that “such emotions will on no account be tolerated in a multicultural municipality like Hoogezand- Sappemeer”.
