Affair Baby At Risk Of 'Honour Killing' Must Be Adopted, Says Court Of Appeal


First Posted: 21/12/11 11:58 GMT Updated: 21/12/11 12:14 GMT PA

A baby at risk of becoming the victim of an "honour killing" because she was born as the result of her Muslim mother's secret affair must be adopted to keep her safe, the Court of Appeal ruled today.

Three senior judges rejected a bid by the one-year-old girl's natural father to have her come and live with him and his wife.

The child's natural mother is in favour of adoption so that her own family will not find out about the birth.

Lord Justice Munby, Lady Justice Black and Lord Justice Kitchin said in a joint judgment the case involved "exceptionally difficult adoption proceedings".

The judges imposed unusually wide reporting restrictions banning the publication of all names and locations linked to the case because of the continuing dangers faced by mother and child.

Good heavens! I'd never considered this issue.

What a mess of complicated issues.

This is one of the chronic ills of Islam and it's modern interpretations into sharia.

Ignorant, evil..,
