What happens to the movable cultural heritage of desacralized churches?

Recently, many churches in Luxembourg have been desacralized. According to the law of the "Kierchefong", the management fund for religious buildings and other property belonging to the Catholic religion, the fund can remain in possession of the furniture, even after the desacralisation. However, it seems that all the useless furniture, which the municipalities do not want, is sold at auction. In this context, our MP André Bauler has submitted some questions to the ministers in charge. In particular, he would like to know whether the law should not be changed in such a way that the movable heritage should be preserved as a whole with the church.

„Viru Kuerzem sinn ech op e Problem opmierksam gemeet ginn, datt mobille Patrimoine aus deene rezent desakraliséierte Kierchen a Kapellen verschwënnt. Dës Gotteshaiser si meeschtens just iwwer de PAG vun de Gemenge geschützt an de Service des sites et monuments huet deemno keen Afloss op d’Erhale vum mobille Patrimoine.

De Mobiliar kann am Besëtz vum Kierchefong bleiwen. Wann d’Gemeng no der Desakraliséierung gären hätt, datt d’Kierch eidel geraumt gëtt, respektéiert de Fong dee Wonsch. Ewéi et mir zougedroe gouf, kucken déi Verantwortlech vum Fong dann, wat si vum Mobilier nach kënnen anerwäerteg gebrauchen, an de Rescht géif versteet ginn.

An deem Kontext wollt ech der Madamm Inneministesch an der Madamm Kulturministesch folgend Froe stellen:

  1. Kënnen déi zoustänneg Ministere bestätegen, datt de Mobiliar, deen de Kierchefong net méi brauch, versteet gëtt?
  2. Wa jo, wier et net eventuell ubruecht d’Gesetz a besonnesch den Artikel 13 am Sënn ze änneren, datt den historesche Mobiliar zu der Kierch gehéiert an och no der Desakraliséierung muss an der Kierch erhale bleiwen, wann dëse vun historeschem Wäert ass an d’Miwwel u sech zesumme mam Héichaltor an anere Miwwel oder immobille Géigestänn ee kulturhistoresch wäertvollen Ensembel bilden?
  3. Kéint d’Madamm Kulturministesch sech an deem Fall och eng méi enk Zesummenaarbecht mam Service des sites et monuments virstellen?
  4. Wéi geséich an deem Fall d’Responsabilitéit vun de Gemengen aus?

Are municipalities allowed to withhold letters from the municipality council?

Citizens, clubs or associations often send invitations, concerns or information requests to the Aldermen and the local council of their community. They usually use the official e-mail or postal address of the municipality. DP MPs Guy Arendt and Claude Lamberty have now learned that some letters never reached the members of the municipality council, even though they were considered the recipients of the letter. They have now asked the Minister of the Interior whether this practice is legal and how it can be ensured that a letter arrives where the sender wishes it.
