Melbourne, Aug 19: An Australian court asked a  Muslim woman witness to appear in the court without a veil for the fair trial in fraud case against college director Anwar Saved.

Judge Shauna Deane on Monday, Aug 19 said, she will not be allowed to wear her 'niqab' when she presents her evidence to the jury.

Though she preferred to wear burqa but the court will not take as legal precedence.

Anwar Sayed is accused of fraudulently obtaining up to USD 752,000 from a total of USD 1.125 million in state and federal grants for the school by falsifying entrance numbers.
