France and Poland clash over court ruling to remove cross from late Pope Jean Paul II statue

A diplomatic spat has erupted between France and Poland over a top court order to remove a cross from a statue of the late Pope Jean Paul II in a Brittany town because it breached rules on secularism.

Poland has pledged to save the work from the “dictates of political correctness” by having it shipped to the late pontiff’s native country.

Gifted in 2006 to the mayor of Ploërmel, western France, the 7.5 metre-high statue depicts Jean Paul II in prayer, standing beneath an arch adorned with a large cross.
