Muslim families refuse swimming lessons despite fines
Five Muslim families in Basel who refused to send their daughters to mixed-sex swimming lessons have not changed their minds after being fined.
A CHF 350 fine was given to each parent in August last year.
Pierre Felder, head of the Basel City elementary school told the Tages Anzeiger newspaper that the same families are now also refusing to send their younger daughters to the swimming lessons.
