Hizb ut-Tahrir faces $100k sexual discrimination claim
by Naomi White
A female journalist has lodged a $100,000 sexual discrimination complaint against Islamist group Hizb ut-Tahrir after reportedly being told to sit apart from the men at one of their public meetings last year.
Alison Bevege says she attended the meeting as a freelance writer on October 10 and was allegedly told to sit at the back by a female representative of the group.
Ms Bevege lodged a complaint with the Anti-Discrimination Board five days later, which was yesterday heard at the tribunal following an unsuccessful mediation between the parties.
