Showing of the Da Vinci Code can continue

Poster of the movie The Da Vinci Code (AFP/File)(insidecostarica.com) - The Constitutional Court rejected an appeal by a Catholic follower that would have suspended the showing of The Da Vinci Code in cinemas in Costa Rica.

The court magistrates did not accept the arguments in the appeal that the film went against the Political Constitution and should be censored. The appellant argued that the film went against the morals and beliefs of Catholics.

The magistrates said that if the contents of the book and the movie were offensive to the appellant, he was well within his right to express his opposition and not see the movie.
