Expert claims court had right to demand woman remove her burqa
by Kay Dibben
A woman who wore a full burqa into an Australian court should have been asked to show her face, a law lecturer says.
Dr Nicky Jones of University of Southern Queensland said magistrates and judges were entitled to see a person's face to prove their identity.
"Many Muslims would be very happy to comply if there was a reason," Dr Jones said.
