…the woman – who wears the Muslim hijab – had received threats from members of her faith for reading the Bible but had not converted to Christianity.It is alleged she met Al Shawany, who she had first met overseas, at Warwick Farm railway station in September 2002 after he told her he had some mail for her from overseas.
Al Shawany allegedly then took her to a Warwick Farm unit and pushed her in the head as she entered.
“She was wearing a hijab. The accused grabbed the hijab, the veil, and pulled it tight across her mouth,” Mr O’Brien told the court.
“She fell to the floor and she couldn’t scream because she had a hijab tight across her mouth.” Al Shawany allegedly raped the woman and later allegedly said: “Let your Jesus help you.” source

The trial continues today in Campbelltown (Australia) District Court.
