Mother convicted of tricking daughter into forced marriage abroad in legal first

Post by Didge on Tue May 22, 2018 6:35 pm

A mother has been convicted of tricking her daughter into a forced marriage abroad in a case believed to be a legal first.

The 18-year-old girl was married to a man 16 years older than her while on what she had been told was a family holiday to Pakistan.

Her mother was found guilty of tricking her into travelling and forcing her to marry following a trial at Birmingham Crown Court, where a jury heard how the victim had sobbed as she was married to the male relative, who had left her pregnant following an earlier trip.

She was just 13 when the marriage contract was created against her will and had had to undergo an abortion on returning to the UK, with her GP reporting his concerns to social services.

These arranged marriages must stop. They come here for a new life and carry on their medieval practices. The poor girl she should choose her own husband. Glad the mother has been jailed.

There's probably is a good number of potential hubands in this mother's community, that she could have arranged meetings with if she wanted her daughter to marry in the community, arranged marriages can work but it has to be with all parties consent. The problem is its all about keeping the family lands or money in the family or clan. Well done that gp for coming forward and to the girl for speaking up.
