Phull v. France, No. 35753/07, ECtHR (Tenth Section), 11 January 2005 (dec.)

Type Judgment
Case number 35753/07


Order to remove the Sikh turban at the security checks at the airport. The application is inadmissible, as it is manifestly ill-founded.

Normative references

Art. 9 ECHR


1. Security checks at airports are necessary for public safety and their arrangement lies within the defendant State's margin of appreciation. Therefore, it does not violate art. 9 ECHR the order to remove a garment of a religious nature if the measure is limited in time.
