Mother guilty of forcing daughter into marriage
Date:23 MAY 2018
Third slide
A woman has been convicted of forcing her teenage daughter to marry a man 16 years her senior. The mother took her daughter to Pakistan under the guise of a holiday, then threatened to burn her daughter’s passport and assaulted her. The girl was brought back to the UK with the assistance of the Home Office, and her mother was convicted of forced marriage and perjury.

Elaine Radway, from the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), said:
‘Forcing someone into marriage against their wishes is a criminal offence, and a breach of their human rights. As this prosecution demonstrates, the CPS will work with partner agencies to identify and prosecute those who coerce, control, dominate or exploit a victim to force them into marriage.’
