Muslim woman must remove veil to give trial evidence
A Muslim woman can stand trial wearing a full-face veil but must remove it to give evidence, a judge has ruled.
Judge Peter Murphy made the ruling at Blackfriars Crown Court in London where the woman is due to stand trial accused of intimidating a witness.
The 22-year-old woman, from Hackney, has refused to remove her niqab and reveal her face in front of any man.
