Syrian in forced marriage attempt charged with Malta’s first honour crime
Man remanded in custody after allegedly beating his teenage daughter and trying to force her into an arranged marriage
“Help me, please help me,” were the first words a 15-year-old girl told the police when they stormed her house to arrest her father, who was charged earlier today with Malta’s first ‘honour crime’.
The man, from Syria, was remanded in custody after allegedly beating his 15-year-old daughter and trying to force her into an arranged marriage.
The Hamrun resident, whose name is banned from publication in order to protect the child victim, appeared before Magistrate Joe Mifsud on Thursday morning.
