Yearbook 1998

Liechtenstein. The question of a church-state divorce was raised when the government proposed reducing the state grant to Catholic Archbishop Wolfgang Haas from 600,000 Swiss francs to 200,000 In order for such a decision to take legal force, it must be signed by Prince Hans Adam II, but he refused and demanded a thorough investigation of the matter. According to Countryaah, the prince in the long run advocates that the church and state should be separated and so do parts of the opposition, but there would probably not be a majority for such a measure in Parliament.
