Outrage as judge claims: 'Muslims feel they can beat their wives'
by Mark O'Regan
A judge has caused outrage after saying he thinks "Muslims feel they can actually beat their wives" during the trial of a Somali man accused of burglary at his former wife's house.
Judge Anthony Halpin's comments made before a packed courtroom yesterday caused a government minister and the Immigrant Council of Ireland to say he needs to immediately clarify or withdraw the remark made during a criminal case.
The judge made the statement just days after telling Tallaght Court he was to be reassigned elsewhere, saying he "may have stepped on some toes".
