The police are currently investigating a case of minors being forced into marriages.
The case involved the discovery of 2 minor girls being forcefully married to adults belonging to the same nationality.
The girls were initially brought into the country on false pretenses and then married to the adults. The police went on to remove their “husbands” as they made the arrests.
The “husbands” have been booked under violation of the Law N° 91(I) of 2014 on Preventing and Combating the Sexual Abuse and Sexual Exploitation of Children and Child Pornography.
