Lleida’s town Council has approved today, with an absolute majority, a motion submitted by the Catalonian nationalist party “Convergència i Unió” (CIU) that ban of full-covering Islamic veils such as the burqa and the niqab in public buildings. The new rule includes all the public buildings as health buildings and also the sportive and cultural use.
