Italian government pushing to reverse Euro court ruling against classroom crucifix

February 02, 2010

Italy's foreign minister, Franco Frattini, has announced his determination to reverse a decision by the European Court of Human Rights, which ruled that the classroom display of a crucifix violated the human rights of non-Christian students. "We are going to the court to defend a very deep sentiment of the Italian people, a fundamental principle which affects the identity of our country," Frattini said as he asked the court to allow an appeal.
