Higher Judicial Council OKs right to wear veil in court
The Higher Judicial Council (CSM) has ruled that the veil may be worn on religious grounds in Italian courts.
In their plenary session this morning, the majority approved a resolution establishing that "full respect must be assured to to those behaviours which, without causing disturbance to the regular and correct court proceedings, constitute a legitimate exercise of the right to profess one's own religion, including those precepts that relate to clothing and other outward signs."
