Witness Tasneem will yield to nikab decision
by Nicolas Perpitch
A Muslim woman ordered to remove her nikab when she gives evidence in a Perth fraud trial says she accepts the court ruling.
She said she had only wanted to dress as she normally does in front of strangers, wearing the head-to-toe nikab.
District Court judge Shauna Deane yesterday ruled the jury should be given the opportunity to see 36-year-old Tasneem's face and demeanour to help them assess the reliability and credibility of her testimony.
