Burqa ban causes debate

Estonia's Minister of Social Protection Margus Tsahkna proposed last week that Estonia should ban wearing the burqa in public. As with the migration debate in general, the suggestion has polarized opinions again.

Estonian Public Broadcasting (in Estonian Eesti Rahvusringhääling, abbreviated as ERR) is a legal person in the public law. It was formed on 1 June 2007 pursuant to the Estonian Public Broadcasting Act, passed by the Estonian Parliament on 18 January 2007, which merged the two formerly separate public service TV and Radio organizations. ERR is a legal successor of Eesti Televisioon and Eesti Raadio, thus assuming all their rights and obligations.
