Council broods over funds for “Islam seminars”

The Grants Council of the Party Academies has not yet reached a definitive conclusion with respect to the controversial “Anti-Islam Seminars” of the FPÖ Educational Institute. The members of the council decided first to consult more information concerning the debated seminars, while a motion by the Greens demanding the return payment of funds used for the seminars was not passed. Klaus Nittmann, director of the FPÖ Educational Institute stated “that the debate in the council has not been objective. Of course we represent a critical perspective with regard to Islam, but the Greens are solely interested in making us repay these funds.”
