Vic imam sacked after child bride charges
by Melissa Iaria
A Melbourne Muslim cleric accused of performing the forced marriage of a child bride has been sacked.
Imam Ibrahim Omerdic, 61, is charged with conduct that caused a minor to enter into a forced marriage at Noble Park on September 29 last year.
Omerdic, imam of the Bosnian Islamic Society and Noble Park Mosque, was stood down after his November arrest, according to a statement by the Islamic Council of Victoria on Monday.
He was later sacked after an internal investigation, and a new imam appointed, the statement said.
