Defendant in veil case Anwar Sayed bashed
by Tony Barrass
Detectives are investigating claims that a man who received death threats because he was agitating to have Muslim women lift their veils while giving evidence has been bashed.
Anwar Sayed, who is standing trial for fraud in the West Australian District Court, had received death threats over the controversy which came to light on Tuesday when a Muslim female witness, known only as Tasneem, asked a judge to decide whether she had to wear her head-to-toe covering while giving evidence for the prosecution.
Mr Sayed was the director at the Muslim Ladies College of Australia in Perth's southern suburbs, where Tasneem worked as a teacher for about 12 months. Mr Sayed has been charged with fraudulently obtaining up to $750,000 from state and federal governments by falsifying the number of students at the college.
