Woman convicted of police veil-lifting lie set to go free
by Natasha Wallace
A magistrate had described the Muslim woman's crime as "malicious" and "ruthless" and sentenced her to six months' jail for falsely accusing a police officer of trying to rip off her veil during a random breath test.
Yesterday, flanked by a scrum of about 20 men screaming "Allahu Akbar" (God is great), Carnita Matthews again emerged from court, having successfully appealed against her conviction of knowingly making a false complaint.
Mrs Matthews, 46, had been stopped by a highway patrol officer last June at Woodbine, in south-west Sydney, and had allegedly refused to remove her veil so that he could identify her.
Moments later, he had fined her for not properly displaying her P-plates and she began arguing with him outside the car.
