European Court to Hear British Discrimination Case

Workers claim that they were dismissed for refusing to remove or conceal crosses

The European Court of Human Rights is hearing the cases of four British Christians who claim to have lost their jobs for religious reasons.

One of the plaintiffs is Nadia Eweida who says she was unfairly suspended by airline British Airways for refusing to remove her necklace bearing a cross.

Lawyers presenting her argument in Strasbourg claim it is discrimination.
