This is an Australian court?

Another Carnitha Matthews case? Why did this magistrate,  tasked with upholding the law, cave in to Mohammedan mores?

His puzzlement, his confusion and his failure to act shows how sick  and morally vacuous Western elites are. The defendant must show his (or her) face. No two ways about it.  Anyone could come and go as someone else, not to mention the security implications.

Not the face of the guilty

To question is one thing, to act would have been another:

A MAGISTRATE has questioned whether a Saudi woman appearing in court should have been allowed to wear “a full burqa’’ or face covering, telling her “this is an Australian court”.  

Brisbane Magistrate John Costello was sentencing a woman who pleaded guilty to leaving her baby, four and half months, unattended in a car in direct sun for 45 minutes last year…

The magistrate questioned whether it was “appropriate’’ for the full burqa to be worn in court, saying: “This is an Australian court’’ and he queried “the validity’’ of her wearing it in court.

But he did not demand she take it off.

But Islamic groups yesterday came out in support of Mr Costello, saying they supported magistrates asking women to remove their face covering if there was a reasonable question of security or identification…

Mr Costello then proceeded to sentence the female student, without requiring her to remove her face covering, more commonly called a niqab when it reveals the eyes.

It’s harder to judge remorse or defiance, a lie or the truth, when the face is concealed. The woman, being unrecognisable, also escapes some of the shame that is the punishment.

  1. “An Australian court”? Not any more it isn’t. The judge has allowed it to slip into sharia territory, where Muslims have special status. Face-rags, not standing for the judge: it won’t stop here.

  2. As a judge or magistrate ,when you sentence some one you are talking to them.( not their lawyer)

    Usually you are asked to stand and then you are spoken to.(again, not your lawyer)

    How can the judge do that when you cannot see their face?

    The magistrate in this case was s dhimmi for insisting that she show her face.

    And another thing,how did she go through court security?

    It is not only a Australian court issue but a security issue as well.

    Everyone is equal before the law (as the saying goes) except some Muslims?

    It might also be helpful if the author provided a link or a short summary of the Carnitha Matthews case.

    Could the author also stop using abbreviations (like JW and say Jihad Watch ) in his posts.Makes for more pleasurable reading.

  3. Sorry should read:

    The magistrate in this case was a dhimmi for NOT insisting that she show her face.

    Yes he did not insist she show her face only questioned it.

  4. I agree with the general thrust of your comments, Daniel. Unfortunately, however, Australia has thrown the concept of equality before the law out the window, with the establishment of ‘Khoori Courts’ and the recognition of systems of land title that can only be claimed by members of a certain race – in South Africa that used to be called apartheid. So how can Australia now logically argue against the legal recognition of Sharia Courts, and other institutions and changes to procedure privileging Muslims?

  5. Was this really the woman subpoenaed to appear in court, how are we to know, better still how was the judge to know it wasn’t carnita matthews under the bag, she seems to be the expert of getting away with crimes of late.
