Ποινή 150€ σε όποια γυναίκα φοράει δημοσίως μπούρκα στην Αυστρία

Μετά την παρ’ ολίγο εκλογή ακροδεξιάς Κυβέρνησης στην Αυστρία, η παρούσα Κυβέρνηση είχε υποσχεθεί προεκλογικά μέτρα που θα περιορίζουν την ακραία μετανάστευση και την άκρατη παροχή δικαιωμάτων στους μετανάστες και το κάνει πραγματικότητα.
Από τον Οκτώβριο θεσμοθετείται πρόστιμο 150€ στις γυναίκες που φορούν δημοσίως μπούρκα. Ανάλογα πρόστιμα ισχύουν πλέον στη Γαλλία τη Γερμανία, το Βέλγιο και τη Βουλγαρία, ενώ ηπιότεροι περιορισμοί στην Ισπανία, την Ιταλία και την Ελβετία.
Στο μέτρο που πρότεινε η κεντρώου προσανατολισμού κυβέρνηση (συμμαχία συντηρητικού και σοσιαλδημοκρατικού κόμματος) αντιτάχθηκαν το αριστερό αλλά και το ακροδεξιό κόμμα, το οποίο θεώρησε το μέτρο μη επαρκές και πρόφαση της Κυβέρνησης για να χάσει μη χάσει τους ψηφοφόρους που την προτίμησαν, ενόψει των πρόωρων εκλογών το φθινόπωρο, λόγω διάρρηξης του μετώπου του κυβερνητικού συνασπισμού.
Επίσης, νομοθετούνται υποχρεωτικά μαθήματα ενός έτους στη γερμανική γλώσσα για τους νέους πρόσφυγες, με την απειλή περικοπής κοινωνικών παροχών σε περίπτωση αποτυχίας του εξεταζομένου.
Austrian parliament passes burqa ban seeing Muslim women face £130 fines for wearing full-face veils. Government says move is part of policies improving integration
Austria’s parliament has approved a burqa ban that will see women wearing full-face veils in public fined €150 (£130) as part of new integration policies.The prohibition will come into effect in October to outlaw Islamic burqas, niqabs and other clothing obstructing facial features in public places, universities, courts or on transport.Opponents have argued that the ban is both discriminatory and unnecessary as a tiny number of women in Austria are thought to wear veils.Legal body the Austrian Bar Board said it ran counter to the country's constitutional democracy and “the fundamental rights of the freedom of conscience and the freedom of private life”.Thousands of protesters took to the streets of Vienna to demonstrate against the proposals earlier this year, with organisers declaring: “Every woman must be able to move freely in public without harassment and discrimination - no matter what she does or does not wear.”Austria’s own President, Alexander Van der Bellen, has publicly opposed the policy, telling school pupils: “It is every woman’s right to always dress how she wants.”

‘Enlightenment values’: Austria enacts anti-burqa & compulsory integration law
A controversial integration law that will fine women for wearing face-concealing Islamic dress from October, and deprive of benefits migrants who fail to take language lessons has officially been enacted, after being rubberstamped by the President.
“Those who are not prepared to accept Enlightenment values will have to leave our country and society,” reads the text of the law that drew thousands of protesters to the streets earlier this year, before it was passed by a centrist coalition last month.
Women who will wear Islamic veils – either the burqa or the niqab – in public places, will face a fine of €150 ($168).
More generally, newcomers who expect to stay in Austria, will need to enroll in a 12-month “integration course,” which includes German language lessons, if they are to receive their welfare benefits.
They will also be expressly forbidden from distributing incendiary radical materials, and are encouraged to volunteer before they can get their work permits, so that they are better prepared for life in the workplace.
More than 90,000 people have arrived in the Central European country since the start of the migrant crisis in 2015, most of them from Muslim-majority countries outside of Europe.
The law was opposed by the left-leaning Green Party, which said that it scapegoated refugees, and the nationalist Freedom Party, which called it a window-dressing for deeper integration issues and said it had been designed to stop its rise in the polls.
The centrist coalition promised that the legislation would offer a holistic approach. It has since collapsed, triggering an early election in October.
“Work is one of the most important factors for successful integration, which is why we are not only breaking down language barriers with this policy – we are also creating a continuous integration concept for the first time,” said Social Democratic politician Alois Stoger back in May.
France was the first EU state to introduce a similar ban in 2010, levying an identical €150 fine. It has since been copied in other countries, including Germany, which has also pushed through a prohibition of face coverings for state employees.
