By KGSaccess_time11 months agochat_bubble_outlineLeave a comment I couldn’t care less what the UN freak show has to say… UN set to lambast France for its ‘discriminatory’ 2010 burqa ban The Local firstname.lastname@example.org 11 October 2018 Photo: Philippe Huguen/AFP The UN Human Rights Committee is set to rule that France’s 2010 law which forbids people from concealing their face in public is ‘discriminatory’ and ‘goes against religious freedom’, the French media has revealed. In 2010, France’s controversial burqa ban made headlines around the world, and it may be about to hit the front pages again. The UN Human Rights Committee (OHCHR) will shortly reveal its conclusion that the law, which forbids people from concealing their face in public – goes against ‘religious freedom’ and is ‘discriminatory against women’, French media has reported. The OHCHR – a consultative body made up of independent international experts but which has no legal power to impose law changes and recently some politicians have called for the law to be hardened. The subject came up last week after it was revealed that after France’s most-wanted man Redoine Faïd was arrested after 3 months on the run, had worn a burqa for disguise. It is not the first time the committee has been asked to examine French law. In August, the UN experts handed in their conclusion into the ‘Baby Loup’ case, in which a woman called Fatima Afif was fired from a nursery near Paris in 2008 for flouting company rules by wearing a headscarf. They ruled that France had infringed religious freedom and that the case breached international agreements on human rights. More here.
