FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — The son and daughter-in-law of a former West African leader have been indicted on charges that they enslaved a girl from their native country while living in Texas.

Mohamed Toure (too-RAY’) and his wife, Denise Cros-Toure, were named in an indictment returned Wednesday. The Fort Worth residents, both 57, are charged with forced labor, alien harboring and conspiracy. Mohamed Toure also is charged with making false statements to federal agents.

The indictments allege the pair brought a girl from Guinea in 2000 and forced her to work in their home for 16 years without pay. Neighbors helped the woman escape in August 2016.

The couple was arrested in April. Defense attorneys have denied the charges.

Mohamed Toure is the son of the late Ahmed Sekou (SHEE’-koo) Toure, the first president of Guinea.

The defendants face decades in prison, if convicted.

  4. So they did it because they were Muslim or the author of the article is manipulating us as he himself is a racist?
    Those ppl were evil ppl and the poor Muslim girl was their victim.
    Why they never say Christian man beat his wife to death or about any other crime that the the perpetrator of the crime was christiam, budfist, atheist, but it is said only about Muslims?
    And I am Christian, by the way.

    • Please quote verbatim where in the Associated Press article it says, “they did it because they were Muslim.” We’ll save you time, it doesn’t say that anywhere. Furthermore, Muslims are not a “race” so the only manipulation going on here is from you – projecting your own feelings and ignorance on the subject.

      Furthermore: Slavery is acceptable in Islam.

      The Qur’an has Allah telling Muhammad that he has given him girls as sex slaves: “Prophet, We have made lawful to you the wives to whom you have granted dowries and the slave girls whom God has given you as booty.” (Qur’an 33:50)

      Muhammad bought slaves: “Jabir (Allah be pleased with him) reported: There came a slave and pledged allegiance to Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) on migration; he (the Holy Prophet) did not know that he was a slave. Then there came his master and demanded him back, whereupon Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) said: Sell him to me. And he bought him for two black slaves, and he did not afterwards take allegiance from anyone until he had asked him whether he was a slave (or a free man).” (Muslim 3901)

      Muhammad took female Infidel captives as slaves: “Narrated Anas: The Prophet offered the Fajr Prayer near Khaibar when it was still dark and then said, ‘Allahu-Akbar! Khaibar is destroyed, for whenever we approach a (hostile) nation (to fight), then evil will be the morning for those who have been warned.’ Then the inhabitants of Khaibar came out running on the roads. The Prophet had their warriors killed, their offspring and woman taken as captives. Safiya was amongst the captives. She first came in the share of Dahya Alkali but later on she belonged to the Prophet. The Prophet made her manumission as her ‘Mahr.’” (Bukhari 5.59.512) Mahr is bride price: Muhammad freed her and married her. But he didn’t do this to all his slaves:

      Muhammad owned slaves: “Narrated Anas bin Malik: Allah’s Apostle was on a journey and he had a black slave called Anjasha, and he was driving the camels (very fast, and there were women riding on those camels). Allah’s Apostle said, ‘Waihaka (May Allah be merciful to you), O Anjasha! Drive slowly (the camels) with the glass vessels (women)!’” (Bukhari 8.73.182) There is no mention of Muhammad’s freeing Anjasha.

  5. Thank you creeping for smashing down Anna’s lies. There’s not a word in this article mentioning “Muslim”. I bet she reads her Bible the same way she read this article. And she calls herself a Christian!

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