Parents 'Wanted Virginity Check For Daughter, 18, After Finding Secret Boyfriend'

A doctor refused to carry out a “virginity check” on a couple’s 18-year-old daughter when they frogmarched her to a clinic after discovering her secret boyfriend, a court heard.

Mitra Eidiani, 42, and Ali Safaraei, 56, also threatened to kill their daughter Sophia’s boyfriend, warning him they were “dangerous” because they were Muslim, a jury was told.

The teenager was bitten by her mum, threatened with a kitchen knife by her dad after returning from the doctor, had her passport taken from her and was told she would be sent “back to Iran to marry a cousin,” Kingston Crown Court heard.

The parents found out Sophia, a college student whose last name was not given in court, was in a relationship with her workmate Bailey Marshall-Telfer, 18, when the pair were caught meeting secretly at her home. [The Huffington Post UK] Read more
