The Times of London have released footage of an immigration lawyer in Bradford UK telling an undercover reporter that there is “no harm” in girls aged 15 getting married “if she is mentally or physically ready.”
It comes as The Times revealed British teenagers are being forced to marry abroad and are raped and impregnated while the Home Office ‘turns a blind eye’ by handing visas to their husbands.
According to The Times, “Officials received dozens of reports last year that women wanted to block visas for men they had been made to marry” in Muslim countries. “In almost half of their cases the visas were approved.”
