Melbourne imam Ibrahim Omerdic charged with conducting marriage ceremony involving child bride
No matter how many of these *&%suckers get caught, leftoids will always point their fingers at Catholic priests and claim what they did was far worse. They ignore that Muslims follow their religion, while priests know very well that they are breaking every law.
The girl, aged under 16, was allegedly married in a traditional Islamic ceremony by prominent cleric Ibrahim Omerdic.
Is is alleged that in the days after the wedding last year the girl was raped by her husband.
The man, who cannot be named, is currently behind bars on remand after being charged with sexual penetration of a child under 16 and forcing the girl into marriage.
He appeared via videolink at the Melbourne Magistrates Court today where he broke down in tears several times.
Sheik Omerdic, who is on bail, also appeared in court facing a single charge over the alleged marriage.
Court documents allege he engaged in conduct that “caused another person … to enter into a forced marriage.”
The victim, who was in court for the hearing, has made several statements to police.
Sheik Omerdic is the imam of the Bosnian mosque in Noble Park where it is understood the marriage took place.
He was engaged by the defence team of Harun Causeivc to provide mentoring services while the teen was placed under a federal control order.
Causevic had terrorism charges dropped against him after he was arrested in the Anzac Day raids in 2015.
Sheik Omerdic gave evidence for Causevic during a Federal Court case and told Judge Norah Hartnett he provided religious counselling to Causevic.
Both men will reappear in court next month.
