Cabinet plans limited ban on burqas in public buildings
The Dutch cabinet is planning to introduce a ban on the wearing of Islamic burqas in public buildings and on public transport, RTL news reports.
The idea was included in the 2012 coalition agreement and home affairs minister Ronald Plasterk will discuss his concept with ministers shortly, the broadcaster says.
The aim of the legislation is to establish 'clear norms' and to emphasis that 'open communication' is part of Dutch society, sources told the broadcaster. The maximum fine will be €405.
