Court: Anti-Islam group must be protected
by Lyssandra Sears
The Federal Court says an anti-Islam group has the right to give out leaflets from an information booth if it wants – and the local authorities must protect them.
Fribourg Council banned the group – The Movement Against the Islamization of Switzerland – from setting up an information booth Place Georges-Python during the anti-minaret campaign in 2009.
It said it refused to give permission because of a fear that violence and unrest would break out as a result, provoking a legal challenge.
