GROUPS

Mouvement Suisse Contre L’Islamisation (MOSCI)

President: David Vaucher

Founded in 2007 in Lausanne and claimed 200 members and 300 sympathisers in 2011.

Fribourg Council banned the group from setting up an information booth during the anti-minaret campaign in 2009. It said it refused to give permission because of a fear that violence and unrest would break out as a result, provoking a legal challenge. However, in 2012, the federal court overruled these charges, stating that an anti-Muslim group had the right to give out leaflets from an information booth if it wanted and the local authorities must protect them.

Since 2012, the group appears to have been dormant though there were some posts on its website in 2016.
