Muslim women should be allowed to wear the veil in court, top judge suggests
Judges should allow Muslim women to appear in court wearing a full-face veil, Britain's most senior judge has suggested.
Lord Neuberger, the President of the Supreme Court, said it was crucial that courts and judges "show, and be seen to show" respect towards different customs.
He said this included having an understanding of the "different cultural and social habits" of those appearing as witnesses, defendants or jurors in cases.
