    New Burqa laws for police in NSW

    NEW laws giving police the power to insist Muslim women remove their burqas so they can be identified will be extended to prisons and courts in legislation New South Wales Premier Barry O'Farrell will take to parliament next week.

    Under the laws, police will not be able to forcibly remove a face-covering if the wearer refuses to do so.
    However, those who do refuse the request will be charged and face $220 fines.
    For motorists, the penalties will be even greater, with fines of up to $5500 or a year in jail.
    Refusing to remove a headcovering in a courtroom will carry a $550 fine.
    The laws will also apply to helmets as well as to niqabs, masks and burqas according to The Daily Telegraph.
    If the subject of a police roadside stop pleads cultural sensitivity as a reason for refusing to remove a head covering, they can ask to go to a police station to remove it.


    The Ombudsman will review the laws in 12 months.
    Mr O'Farrell will announce the changes to the Law Enforcement (Powers and Responsibilities) Act today.
    Mr O'Farrell said that under the current laws, police could ask someone to provide identification but had virtually no powers to require someone to remove a face covering.
    "Under the changes, police will be able to demand the removal of any face covering including a helmet, burqa, niqab, mask or any item of clothing when requiring people to prove their identification," he said.
    "There will be strong safeguards to ensure that the new powers are used sensibly.
    "People will only be required to remove a face covering for as long as it takes to identify them.
    "In other words, we want to ensure that identification occurs as quickly as possible and with privacy if the person requests it. At the same time, we are going to give police the powers ... to make a clear identification of those suspected of committing offences."

    You can tell a lot about a society by the degree to which their recognize other people's cultures. Is this being pushed by the feminists or the paranoid? It's not like burqas are something new.

    It is ridiculous that a policeman can't demand someone uncover their face.

    If the police are looking for a criminal it would be so easy for that person, man or woman, to put on a burqua and not take it off at a police roadblock.

    I would suggest Australia has been extemely understanding of other peoples culture. Say what you will, but there's a reason these people are trying to get into Australia.

    However, Australia will only bend over for so long.

    What they're photographing is your number plate.
    Then they just send the fine to the registered address.

    Be more appropriate if "koojo" changed his nic to "numbnuts" he's obviously got out of the wrong side of the bed this morning! Maybe he's just tired and confused today?

    They're not fining the person who's photograph is taken either, they're not comparing the face in the picture with anything, they're just sending a fine to the individual and address associated with the number.

    Sounds like some of the posters on this forum have it in for aussies. Maybe they are envious because Australia has not been completely fucked up by migrants (yet) . A Pom once told me that these people are all from the counties that England has been sticking their nose into over the years, coming back to haunt them. Karma.

    If the Aussie police uses women to look under the burqas that should be ok.
