  • 5 November 2007 : Recognition of 43 mosques

The King signed the decree recognising imams officiating in the 43 mosques recognised by the Walloon Region. 50 are to receive a salary paid for by the state, as do Catholic, Orthodox and Anglican priests, lay councillors, Protestant pastors and rabbis. The number of state-funded imams depends on the numbers congregating at each of the recognised mosques : most Muslim places of worship concerned (37 out of 43) will be pleased to be receiving public funding for one imam, five more will be entitled to two imams and one mosque will be endowed with three imams.
