$ 85000 for a muslim woman forced to remove her veil during an arrest

A Muslim woman has been awarded $85,000 after an officer forcibly removed her hijab, or headscarf, when she was in police custody in Long Beach, California. Police originally banned inmates from wearing head scarves.

Powell's attorney, Marwa Rifahie, said she was stopped by police officers with her husband in 2015 as he was driving a lowrider vehicle.

Local news website ABC7 reported she had three outstanding warrants against her name, which have since been cleared.

Powell was the passenger, but was arrested after police found a warrant under her name for a shoplifting incident.

The transaction was disclosed in a legal filing with the Securities & Exchange Commission, which is available at the SEC website . Over the last week of the month, it was -4.78%, -19.24% over the last quarter, and -21.75% for the past six months.

During the 2015 incident, Powell's husband requested for a female officer to come to the scene because physical contact should come from another woman according to their religious beliefs, as stated in the lawsuit.

The woman wouldn't remove her hijab as she claimed she had a legal right to wear it but officers removed it anyway in front of several others.

The police then went to arrest Powell and her husband requested it was done by a woman, however this was refused, the lawsuit said.

According to DailyMail UK, officers who arrested Powell were following the Long Beach Police Department's policy, but that policy itself was in the wrong, according to Machit.

Powell was without her hijab for 24 hours until she was released. This made to her spend a nightin jail without it.

"She cried throughout the ordeal and experienced humiliation when both her religious beliefs and personal integrity were violated", the lawsuit claimed.

Long Beach voted Tuesday to approve the settlement agreement, which includes $ 85,000 in damages, says Cair, noting that the city and other localities of the counties of Orange and San Bernardino, in the outskirts of Los Angeles, have amended their regulations to protect the right of the islamic headscarf in custody.

'She felt that the male officers and male inmates had seen parts of her body that they should not have seen, according to her religious beliefs'.
