A shocking video shows the moment a 14-year-old girl is allegedly forced to marry a man 20 years older than her at the back of a Melbourne mosque.

The video seized by police from the alleged groom’s phone shows the traditional Islamic ceremony by a prominent Muslim marriage cleric last year.

Imam Ibrahim Omerdic, 62, has faced court accused of forcing a minor to enter marriage.

In video shown in court and obtained by 7 News, a timid teenage girl sits quietly as her groom-to-be signs papers presented by the Imam.

The underage girl’s mother watches on, after the groom allegedly paid to marry her daughter with a $1,480 gold necklace.

The Imam asks the child bride if she takes the man – who she reportedly met only a few days prior – ‘to live together and live according to Islam.’

She answers ‘yes’ and is told by the Imam that as a wife, she now has a duty to ‘obey’ her husband.

Family and Communities Services received 60 reports of illegal ceremonies involving 57 children between 30 December 2014 and January 31 2017, 7 News reported.

A total of 23 children wed in illegal ceremonies were under the age of 16, including four under the age of ten.

‘It is deeply disturbing to think little girls pre-puberty are being considered for marriage and for people to be organising that marriage,’ FACS Minister Pru Goward told the network.

Laura Vidal from anti-slavery group The Freedom Partnership said children being forced into marriage leads to serious impacts.

‘The long term impacts of people being forced into marriage can be quite serious including forced or unwanted pregnancies, withdrawal from education,’ she said.


Update: Former imam guilty of marrying child bride to a 34-year-old at Noble Park mosque

A former Melbourne imam has been found guilty of marrying a 14-year-old girl to a man 20 years older, after a magistrate found the evidence against the cleric was “compelling”.

Ibrahim Omerdic, 62, was on Thursday found to have married the girl to the man, 34, at a Bosnian mosque in Noble Park on September 29 last year.

The charge of taking part in a forced marriage carries a maximum jail term of seven years.

Omerdic fought the charge in a contested hearing in Melbourne Magistrates Court last month.

The man is currently in custody and due to appear before the County Court in September.

  1. Forced Under Sharia Law. That is the 7th Century Lifestyle of Islam. Still pushing its way to destroy all others and take over the world. Ignored and aided by Liberals everythere.

  2. Well how interrrrrresting that the “ceremony” was performed “at the back of a Melbourne mosque”. Hmmmm! Well, not for nuthin’, but isn’t that exactly where all of this MUZZTURD CRAP takes place???? One thing is for sure, they’re not gonna do this kind of bull-zhit up front, in the main lobby!!!! And guess what–it’s the BACK ROOMS of these mosques where these mullahs and imams are teaching BLOODY VIOLENT JIHAD to the vulnerable teenage kids too!!! That’s why it’s futile to surveil these mosques from the main lobby–they’re too ‘smart’ for that! It all takes place under cover BEHIND CLOSED DOORS–YOU BETTER BELIEVE IT!!!!!

  3. Creepy Behind The Times awful religion and culture and Sharia laws have no place in our modern up to date civilized communities Arrest for child abuse child sexual assault child kidnapping ect

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
