Swedish court disallows teen's Sharia marriage
A Swedish court has ruled that a 17-year-old girl's marriage by a Sharia court in the West Bank is invalid in Sweden, overturning a lower court's decision.
The girl, who is now 19-years-old, was married in June 2010 in a Sharia court located in the West Bank town of Hebron, ten days before her 18th birthday, according to Swedish court documents.
When she and her husband moved to Sweden they sought to have their marriage registered with the Swedish Tax Agency (Skatteverket).
