Greece's Muslims seek reform between civil and religious laws
#1
When he died almost a decade ago, Chatidje Molla Sali's husband willed her a comfortable widowhood: at least a million dollars' worth of rentable property in Greece's northern province of Thrace, where the couple lived, and in Istanbul, from where he hailed.

That financially secure life has so far eluded her. Molla Sali's two sisters-in-law contested the will on the grounds that, as a member of Thrace's Muslim community, their brother was bound by the precepts of Islamic law, under which they, too, should receive a share of his estate.

The Sali dispute has now escalated into a landmark case at the European Court of Human Rights and prompted the Greek government to radically alter the law governing its Muslims for the first time since they found themselves outside the jurisdiction of the Ottoman Empire in 1918.

So when did Greek law change, as in the 70/80's Europeans were being told that they had to have a Greek partner to buy any property or land in Greece.
