Korakia pensioner’s pension denied

A Korakia woman who says she was denied her pension because she was a woman has sued the city for discrimination.

The pension was denied because she’s a woman, the suit says. 

Korakia Mayor Mounir Bouhassi says he would be more than happy to change the law if it was necessary.

He says he wants to make sure that the city will provide an equitable amount of money to female pensioners.

“If we do not provide the amount that they need to get married and start a family, then we will make the city pay more, that’s the only thing that we would change,” Bouhasi said.
