Melbourne man to be first person convicted of forced child marriage under federal law

Post by Thorin on Sun May 07, 2017 1:38 am

VICTORIAN schoolgirls are being forced into marriage in record numbers as a Melbourne man is set to be the first person convicted under federal forced-marriage laws. Authorities are investigating dozens of child-bride and forced-marriage claims, with new figures revealing Victorian cases make up almost one-third of probes launched. Now the Herald Sun can reveal Melbourne man Majed Mamosi is likely to become the first person to be convicted under federal forced-marriage laws since the practice was criminalised in 2013.

The laws can be extremely difficult to prosecute because they rely on victims testifying.

I find this appalling that nobody has ever been convicted and reading the article there is countless examples of this happening.
