Discrimination complaint lodged against French municipality
A community group has lodged a formal complaint against a municipal council in a Paris suburb after it sacked four summer camp instructors for fasting during Ramadan. The coordinator of the group told RFI the complaint will help protect Muslim employees in France
The complaint was logded with the mayor of Gennevilliers on Saturday by the organization, Front des Banlieues Independant Association, that works to alleviate poverty.
The organization's president Hassan Ben M'Barek said he lodged the complaint as the town's reason for the dismissal, children's safety, "masks discrimination against a Muslim practice".
