Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. A wife is beleived to be the first Muslim woman to give evidence against her husband for raping her.

    Special measures were put in place at Southampton Crown Court to enable the woman to give evidence. The Court heard because of her religious beliefs, the victim had not initially been prepared to talk about sexual matters in front of men.

    She testified on condition that only a female interpreter be present at the hearing. She spent five days giving evidence via a video link, so jurors could see her but she couldn't see them.

    Judge Jeremy Burford QC handed down an order without limit on the Victims husband as he is suffering from paranoid schizophrenia.

    At least she didn't have to produce four witnesses to testify on her behalf.
     
  3. "Judge Jeremy Burford QC handed down an order without limit on the Victims husband as he is suffering from paranoid schizophrenia"

    he will probably get a concurrently serving sentence especially if they both deny it!
     
  4. There was a case in Bradford where a muslim woman gave evidence against her husband who had raped her repeatedly over several years and forced her to have sex with her daughter.
