Man who forced veil on wife can't become French
by Crispian Balmer
The French government has refused to give citizenship to a foreigner who has forced his French wife to wear a full-face Islamic veil, Immigration Minister Eric Besson said on Tuesday.
The announcement came just days after a parliamentary commission called for a law to ban the wearing of head-to-toe veils in public places, such as schools, hospitals and government offices.
Besson said in a statement that investigations had shown that the foreign man, whose name was not given, was making his French wife wear the veil.
