FDLE report on ex-Muslim runaway teen criticized
A Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigation has found no "credible" evidence that Christian convert Rifqa Bary is endangered by her Muslim parents she fled in July in fear of her life.
Supporters of the Ohio teen, however, called the FDLE report a "travesty of justice," and one Islam expert criticized the report as "political correctness" that will endanger the girl's life.
The FDLE report, which was unsealed Sept. 14 by Judge Daniel Dawson of Orange County's Ninth Judicial Circuit Court, summarizes the department's investigation of Rifqa Bary's claims that her father, Mohamed Bary, threatened her life in June after learning of her conversion to Christianity.
Dawson ruled Sept. 3 that Rifqa would remain in emergency protective custody of the Department of Children and Families (DCF), setting the next hearing on the matter for Sept. 29. Dawson has also put a "gag order" in effect, forbidding attorneys from speaking to the media about their clients.
