KEMEROVO, July 10 (RIA Novosti) - Local prosecutors have called a mini-skirt ban, introduced at a teacher's college in the southwestern Siberian city of Kemerovo, a violation of students' constitutional rights.

The college had issued internal instructions banning students from wearing mini skirts, jeans and any clothing that exposed the back or belly area. Bright makeup and piercings were also banned.

"Prosecutors qualified the ban as an infringement of equality and human rights...guaranteed by the Russian constitution," the prosecutor's office said in a statement posted on its website.

The college administration admitted the violation and has since lifted the restrictions.
