Parents in court accused of breaching ‘forced marriage’ order by trying to take children to Pakistan

The man and woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, appeared at Teesside Magistrates’ Court

Parents accused of breaching a forced marriage protection order by trying to take their children out of the country have appeared in court.

The Teesside family, who cannot be named for legal reasons, were stopped at the departure gate at Newcastle Airport on August 5 last year.

The man and woman are accused of trying to board a flight to Dubai with their three daughters and son aged four to 15.

Teesside Magistrates’ Court heard that prosecutors say the family also had a connection flight booked from Dubai to Islamabad, in Pakistan.

This allegedly put the pair in breach of a forced marriage protection order imposed at Middlesbrough County Court in January 2016.
