Court rules religious symbols do not violate constitutional rights

February 1st, 2013 (InsideCostaRica.com) A man who lodged an appeal with Costa Rica’s constitutional court because he felt his rights were violated by the municipality of Montes de Oca has lost his case.

 

The man alleged that the State violated its responsibility to be impartial and neutral by allowing religious symbols in public institutions.

 

However, constitutional lawyer, Fabian Volio, explained that the State does not have to be neutral in this case, if it has an official religion.

 

Costa Rica is an officially Catholic country.

 

The Constitutional Court itself did not explain its decision.
