Men ordered from courtroom for Muslim witness
by Debbie Guest
Men were ordered out of a Perth court yesterday after a judge set down conditions to accommodate a woman giving evidence without her nikab.
But while male journalists and men from the public gallery were banned, 19 males involved in the trial --including 12 jurors -- were allowed to stay in the District Court room.
The woman, known only as Tasneem, took off part of her head-to-toe nikab so that her face was revealed as she gave evidence via video link from a nearby room in the court complex.
