  1. If she is perfectly entitled to dress as she sees fit, then it would be interesting if the opposing party sees fit to wear one as well.

  2. l look at that photo of “It” and have a vision of Robert Hayes in Flying High saying “Surely you can’t be serious?”

  3. “Judge says she would have to reveal her face while giving evidence”

    Yes how else will she give evidence and be cross examined.

    How will the jurors or the judge assess her?

    What message are you giving and what sort of society do you want if you are veiled?
