(Daily Mail)- A husband has vowed to keep his wife indoors after she became the first woman in Italy to be fined for wearing a burka in public.
Amel Marmouri, 26, was handed the 500 euro (£430) penalty after she was spotted queuing inside a post office by police with her body and face fully covered by the garment.
She was warned she would receive another fine if she were spotted again in her burka.
Yesterday her husband said as a result he had no option but to stop her from going out.
Unemployed Ben Salah Braim, 36, said: ‘I just don’t know where we are going to get 500 euros to pay the fine.
‘We thought as she was going to the mosque she was OK to wear the burka.
‘We knew about the law and I know that (the law) is not against my religion but now Amel will have to stay indoors. I can’t have other men looking at her.
‘If the law says she can’t wear one then she will have to stay inside night and day. There is nothing I can do.’
