FRANCE— At least two women were arrested for protesting France’s ban on full-faced veils.
France has imposed a law that can carry a fine of $215 for wearing a full faced veil, and a $43,000 fine for forcing a woman to wear one.
The Muslim veil, or “Burqa”, is part of the Islamic culture and traditions.
“I will, under no circumstances, stop wearing my veil,” said Kenza Drider. “If I am warned verbally and must appear before the local prosecutor … I will appeal to the European Court of Human Rights.”
