The Danish tabloid Ekstra Bladet has found a loophole in the upcoming law that will prohibit the use of face veils in public such as a burqa, niqab or any kind of mask.
The new law is set to come into effect on August 1, and in response, the newspaper have launched a campaign to protest against the law.
Loophole in law's wording
The loophole in question deals with the wording of the law that gives exceptions to the ban on face veils in public. The law states: "Excluded from the ban is the covering of the face that serves a legitimate purpose".
Ekstra Bladet has interpreted this to mean that events such as a masquerade ball would be a legitimate purpose to cover your face.
