Child marriage: 10-year-old girl officially wedded by Marriage registry
Child marriage…The Saudi Justice Minister Walid Mohammed Al-Samaani says he is seeking after a mazoun (marriage official) for wedding a 10-year-old young lady, the Saudi Gazette has announced, citing service sources.
The sources said the clergyman has sent the marriage contract to the Ministry of Labor and Social Development to settle on the marriage authority’s infringement of the Child Protection Law.
Under the framework, mazouns ought not to direct marriage contracts including young ladies who are under 17 years old.
As indicated by the service, such relationships may be solemnized by courts to ensure the underage young ladies against any physical or mental damages.
The service did not recognize the mazoun nor the young lady, the medium expressed.
