    News A British doctor allegedly held hostage by her family for a forced marriage in Bangla

    A British doctor allegedly held hostage by her family for a forced marriage in Bangladesh is free to return home to the UK, a court has ruled.




    Dr Abedin was allegedly held after visiting family


    Humayra Abedin's lawyer has said her parents have been ordered to give up the GP's passport.
    Two judges have also ruled that the 33-year-old must remain in the court's custody until she flies home.
    The GP, who works in east London, was captured in [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] after going to see her apparently ill mother, it has been claimed.
    Lawyer Sara Hossein said: "We're delighted with the result, the rights of a Bangladeshi woman have been protected as they should be.
    "Dr Abedin looks very relieved, she's a very brave woman."
    After virtually no communication with the outside world, a close friend of Dr Abedin told Sky News he received a desperate-sounding text message from her.
    The message said: "Please help me. My life is in danger. They have locked me in a house. My job is at stake. They are making my life hell."
    When her story first came to light last week, her lawyer in the UK, Anne-Marie Hutchinson, said: "It's pretty shocking that it can happen to an independent, professional woman living in her own flat in London and working at a major teaching hospital.
    "You would think that her age and the fact that she is independent would have kept her safe.
    "Her family assume that their choices are better than hers."
    The court ruling comes after the High Court was asked to take action under a new [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], ordering the doctor's relatives in [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] to show her to a woman's organisation or the authorities.
    Honouring the UK court order, the Bangladesh High Court had asked Dr Abedin's family to produce her before the court by today.
    Dr Abedin has allegedly been held by her family before. In August she escaped from family in Dhaka but returned there voluntarily after urgent messages saying her mother was sick.
    Lawyers representing her father, Mohammad Joynal Abedin, have previously claimed Dr Abedin is mentally ill and unable to decide for herself.

    There seems to be something missing in this story, Why haven't the parents been arrested and charged with Kidnap or something ?

    Possibly because they are 5000 miles away and UK law doesn't mean shit in Bangladesh?

    I think you'll find the keyword in that statement is "relatives"...her parents (who more than likely were the instigators of the plan) are safely out of reach of the UK authorities.

    Read little on this earlier this week and I'm glad to see what appears to be co-operation from the Bangladeshi authorities. Hopefully she will return back safely, although from the article, it doesn't actually say she's actually been released by her family yet.

    Drop the attitude because you are beginning to piss me off.

    You've already pissed off a longstanding member and VIP with your racist undertones so tread very carefully.

    You are new in our community and its upto you to fit in with us not the other way round.

    Looking at your post history you post crap and nothing of value to these forums so it would be no loss for us to fuck you off.

    The ball is in your court and just so you know I'm not in the habbit of justifying my actions to idiots with attitude who come in our forums posting crap.

    She came back yesterday, so at least a happy ending in this case.
