Czech Court Rejects Lawsuit on School Veil Ban; Somali Refugee Sought $2,350 in Prejudice Suit

A Czech court has rejected a discrimination suit filed by a Somali refugee, who was banned from wearing her headscarf in a nursing school, the Al Jazeera website reports today (January 27, 2017).

"The suit which the plaintiff lodged seeking an apology and 60,000 crowns ($2,350) in compensation was rejected," said Justice Daniela Cejkova, handing down the verdict in a Prague court today.

Ayan Nuur filed a lawsuit against the school after she was not allowed to attend while wearing a headscarf.

Nuur, who was granted asylum in the Czech Republic in 2011, did not attend the trial, but was represented by her lawyer.
