SA woman rescued from abuse in Pakistan
Cape Town - A Cape Town woman is on her way home after being rescued from an abusive marriage in Pakistan, it was reported on Tuesday.
EWN quoted Gift of the Givers Imtiaz Sooliman as saying that they were called in to help bring back 38-year-old Sajida Sungey, who had left Cape Town for Pakistan in 2010 with her husband.
Sooliman said the abuse came to light after Sungey lost contact with her family.
“She was held captive, abused and was not allowed to talk to her family. Every time she tried to make a call, the phone was cut off.”
Sungey, a mother of two, gave Pakistani officials a 10-page affidavit detailing her abuse. She does not plan to return to the country for follow-up investigations.
