The administrative court of Grenoble suspended this Wednesday a provision of the new regulations of the municipal swimming pools of the city authorizing the wearing of the burkini, considering that it "(does) seriously undermine the principle of neutrality of the public service".

The court ruled following the filing by the prefect of Isère of a “secularism summary” demanding the suspension of this controversial measure.

The new swimming pool regulations, carried by the majority of the environmental mayor of Grenoble Eric Piolle, were initially to come into force on June 1.
