Hijab woman accused police of being racist
A policeman accused of trying to pull off a Muslim woman's headdress has told a Sydney court he isn't a racist.
Senior Constable Paul Fogarty pulled over Carnita Matthews, 45, on June 8 this year at Woodbine in Sydney's southwest.
She later filed a police complaint claiming he tried to pull off her hijab, which concealed her entire face except for her eyes.
Mr Matthews was subsequently charged with one count of knowingly making a false complaint.
