The Danish Parliament adopted today a law forbidding the wearing of veil in public places.
A total of 75 members of the Danish parliament voted in favour of the law, while 30 members voted against it, during a parliamentary vote session.
The law, which comes into force next August, imposes a fine of 1,000 krone (160 dollars) for violations. And if repeated fines will be increased to 10,000 krone for each offense.
France was the first country to ban veils in public places, through a law that came into effect in 2011, followed by Belgium and Austria. (QNA)
