Burqa teen case: Woman denies failing to help girl
by Jimmy Ellingham
The wife of a Muslim man accused of bashing and detaining their 15-year-old daughter denies failing to seek medical attention for the injured girl, who allegedly suffered a broken nose and broken tooth.
Police also say the girl was made to hide her injuries under a burqa.
The woman entered a not guilty plea in the Manukau District Court today to a charge of criminal nuisance. Like her husband, the woman was granted name suppression to protect the identity of her daughter.
