Aussie Senator Jacqui Lambie to introduce legislation to ban burqa, full face coverings in public

ANYONE who forces a child to wear a burqa in public could be jailed for a year and fined $68,000, under a draft law to be introduced by Jacqui Lambie.

The Palmer United Party Senator’s legislation would also make it an offence to “compel” an adult to wear a full face covering in public, with a fine of $34,000 or a maximum of six months in prison.

Additionally, the private member’s bill would make it unlawful to wear a full face covering in public “without reasonable excuse”.
