French Muslims Use Our Cash to Fight Burkha Ban
by Cyril Dixon
A French Muslim couple sparked fury yesterday by using a free legal service paid for by British taxpayers to challenge their country's controversial burkha ban.
The unnamed husband and wife claim they were forced to move to Britain from France by the new law which prevents women wearing the veil in public.
They want £10,000 damages because the "unnecessary, disproportionate and unlawful" ban breaches their right to free movement across the European Union.
