Germany moves step closer to introducing burka ban

15 Oct

The ban will not only apply to Bulgarian citizens but also to anyone temporarily in the country.


The new law states that clothing that conceals the face may not be worn in the institutions of Bulgaria’s central and local administrations, schools, cultural institutions, and places of public recreation, sports and communications.

Krasimir Velchev, a senior lawmaker for the ruling GERB, said: “The law is not directed against religious communities and is not repressive. We made a very good law for the safety of our children.”
