The lower house of the Parliament of the Netherlands passed a law which prohibits the wearing in public places clothing that covers the face.

By law, such clothes cannot be worn in public transport, educational and medical institutions and governmental buildings. Violators will face a fine – 405 euros.

Now the law needs to approve the upper house of the Dutch Parliament.
