It begs the question…How come people who suggest such ridiculous things ever attained their position in the first place ?
How can a court of law operate a fair trial or the Judge come to a justified conclusion if the defendant or defendant’s insist in concealing their face in court behind a veil ?
The Judge will be aware of the person and have seen them without a veil no doubt, but it should be for the whole court to see the person who is accused not just the judge.
Where is there a religion or any other custom that requires a women to cover their face, they are not compelled to do this.
Multi-culturism like this is a step too far.
When there is a clash of cultures the inevitable is conflict, Multi-culturism does not work, it never will and should not be encouraged.
