Apostolos Anthimos on Sharia Law in Greece
Posted on January 29, 2018
I would like to recommend to readers a recent post at Conflict of Laws by friend of Letters Blogatory Apostolos Anthimos on Sharia Law in Greece: Blending European Values with Islamic Tradition. The post covers a new Greek statute that grants Greek Muslims the right to resort to civil law instead of Islamic law but retains the right for Islamic procedural and substantive law to apply when both parties wish it. I wrote recently about Molla Sali v. Greece, a European Court of Human Rights case that raises issues concerning Greece’s unique mixing of civil and Islamic law. Interesting stuff!
