Burka-wearing abuse victim told – remove veil or we’ll jail YOU

10 Mar

Amira Behari, 43, refused to reveal her face at the city’s State Court last year when she appeared to testify against a man who allegedly abused her in a train station.


The man, identified only as Kai.O, allegedly called her an “a**ehole” and told her to “go back to where you belong”.

Judge Thomas Mueller said at the original hearing in November he wanted to see her face to “read her emotions,” adding: “I need to see you otherwise there will be considerable problems in adjudicating your case.”
