Spanish judge orders brothel approval

LLEIDA, Spain, March 8 (UPI) -- A Spanish judge ordered officials in a city to give a license to a brothel two blocks away from where plans for a mosque were rejected.

A Catalonian judge ordered Lleida town hall to give company Antri a license to open a brothel in the same area where the Catalonian Supreme Court rejected plans for a mosque last year, The Local.es reported Friday.

Marta Camps, the city's planning minister, released a statement saying both the mosque and the brothel had been rejected by the city because the area is classified as "an industrial zone."

Camps said she found it "grotesque" that courts would issue such contradictory rulings.

Officials said they are also concerned about the brothel's soundproofing, hygiene and parking.
