Crucifix Battle: British Airways to pay 32,000 euro after sacking woman for wearing cross

 The Strasbourg court awarded the Coptic Christian 32,000 euros in compensation.

­“The domestic authorities failed sufficiently to protect the first applicant’s right to manifest her religion, in breach of the positive obligation under article 9,” the ECHR said in a majority ruling, citing Article 9 of the European Convention of Human Rights, which guarantees freedom of thought, conscience and religion.

Nadia Eweida, a practicing Coptic Christian, was awarded €2,000 ($2,665) in compensation by the court after it ruled against an earlier decision by UK courts.
