Sharia alert from the UK — not as the law of the land, but as a matter of individual observance. From EDP24, with thanks to Anthony:
A Muslim woman alleged to have been recruited to help abduct five children from Norfolk and take them to Libya told a court yesterday that she had only gone on the trip with her husband because she had to “obey him”.
Wearing a veil completely covering her face, Wedad Ahmed, 38, said through the help of an interpreter that her husband Mustafa Abushima, 45, had not discussed with her the trip to Morocco, in which it is alleged they posed as parents of the five abducted children.
She told the jury at Norwich Crown Court: “When my husband gives an order I have to obey him. I cannot do anything but.”
