Grossi hails top court's Lombardy mosque

'Against discrimination'

(ANSA) - Rome, February 24 - Paolo Grossi, the new president of Italy's Constitutional Court, on Wednesday hailed a ruling earlier in the day that struck down a Lombardy regional law restricting the development of mosques in the northern Italian region. "Our concern is to be custodians of fundamental rights: the essential nucleus of the sentence is based on avoiding discriminations, as the Court adjudged were present in the law," he said. The anti-immigrant Northern League earlier slammed the top court's ruling as "Islamic".
