Catalonia: (Spain): The Supreme Court has rejected the motion presented by the city of Lleida to ban the burqa in public buildings. The council delegation had declared in March this year, their intention to go to the Supreme Court, as in their point of view, the banning of the burqa aims to preserve the equality between men and women and to defend the dignity of women, of law obedience, of beliefs, and of religious freedom. The Supreme Court on the other hand stated that “the burqa ban is a limitation on the exercise of religious freedom.”
