Female employees were insulted by (Musel-)men who were visiting the mosque.
Local media claim its ‘about insults’, which is something traffic wardens are normally used to. In this case I suspect they fear for their safety, which is an insult to law and order, and to the nation of Spain.
Only male traffic wardens are now active in the mosque area in Palma’s Pere Garau district. Dornier, the company responsible for the concession, made the decision after various incidents occurred. Female employees were insulted by men who were visiting the mosque, the company said.
Initially it was decided that the traffic wardens would patrol the neighbouring streets in twos. But because of a lack of staff it was ultimately decided to withdraw the female traffic wardens.
The charges were disputed in the Muslim Association of the Balearics. At no time was the city council asked to withdrawn female traffic wardens, they said. They respected the women and their work. However, many visitors to the mosque were angered by the tickets. The parking situation was difficult, they said, and many of the fauthful were unemployed.
