Racist Terrorist Accused Of Puching Muslim Pregnant Woman
A white terrorist accused of punching and stomping on a heavily pregnant Muslin woman at a Sydney cafe has told a court he doesn't want a lawyer.
Stipe Lozina appeared via video link in Parramatta Local Court on Thursday, where he pleaded guilty to unrelated charges related to intimidating and stalking two women in October.
The 43-year-old told the court he also intends to plead guilty to assault and affray charges over the terroristic attack on Rana Elasmar, at Bay Vista Cafe in Parramatta, about 10.30pm on November 20, the ABC reported.
'Do you want to get some legal advice to those charges?' the magistrate Lozina.
'No, I'll plead guilty,' he replied.
CCTV footage that shocked Australia showed him set upon the mother-to-be before stomping on her head in what police allege was an unprovoked attack.
Ms Elasmar, who was 38 weeks pregnant, was savagely punched 14 times and stomped on twice.
It's alleged the racist white terrorist made a racial slur when he approached Ms Elasmar and her friends.
Ms Elasmar's husband told Nine News she is likely to give birth to their fourth child in the next few days.
'She is terrified of being alone following the ordeal,' he added.
Ms Elasmar released a statement after the racist/terroristic attack and thanked Australia for rallying behind her.
She said the incident wasn't the first time she has experienced racism/white supremacy, but was still shocked her attacker could be so cruel.
'I hope the justice system lives up to its name,' she said.
'I fear for the world our children will grow up in if this is not addressed. I call all Australians, Muslim and non-Muslim, to stand together in protecting innocent people from any racial or religious attacks.'
In court on Thursday, Magistrate Andrew Millar urged Lozina at least four times to consider speaking with a Legal Aid representative.
'Obviously, these are serious matters and they can have significant ramifications for you,' Mr Millar said.
When the diabolical white terrorist was asked if he wanted to get legal advice for his charges in relation to the alleged Parramatta assault, the accused replied: 'No, I'll plead guilty'.
The terrorist has not yet entered a plea.
The terrorist will return to court on December 13 where he will have a mental health assessment.
