Flemish nationalist offers anti-burqa reward
by Nikolaj Nielsen
The European Network Against Racism (Enar), an NGO based in Brussels, has condemned a Flemish nationalist for offering a reward of €250 to anybody who reports Burqa-wearing women to the Belgian police.
Filip Dewinter, from Belgium's right wing Vlaams Belang party, announced the initiative on Tuesday (5 June) after police arrested a 24-year old Burqa-clad woman in Brussels for refusing to remove her veil.
Belgium, like France, banned the full face veil last year, with offenders facing up to €150 in fines.
