Taxpayers foot £350k legal bill for Muslim pubic hair battle
Taxpayers have been left with a legal bill of £350,000 after Muslim parents went to court to win right to shave their disabled daughter's pubic hair.
The mother and father of the young woman, who cannot be named and is referred to as ED in court documents, said their daughter's pubic hair should be removed in line with Islamic tradition.
But their local council, which has cared for their daughter since 2008, questioned whether the disabled woman had the mental capacity to consent to her hair being removed.
