Deaf Pakistani girl held as UK sex slave

2012-02-13 22:34

London - A young, deaf Pakistani woman says she was only 10 when she was trafficked into Britain where she was repeatedly raped and beaten for nearly a decade.

The woman, now in her 20s, told a court on Monday that she was kept in a cellar and forced to work as a virtual slave.

A Pakistani couple - 83-year-old Ilyas Ashar and his wife, 66-year-old Tallat Ashar - are accused of false imprisonment, human trafficking, sexual offenses, violence and benefit fraud. Both have pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The woman, who can't be identified for legal reasons, said she was brought from Pakistan to work as a domestic servant in Manchester.

It is unclear why Britain's Home Office permitted the couple to bring the girl.

    they will never see the kingdom into eternity. instead they will relive their immortality feeling what she went through over and over again. the deserve no mercy and should they be recognised on the street, they should be shown only cruelty. they are not beast nor animal, for no beast or animal would do what they did. i hope she can recover emotionally over what they did to her. i know i wouldnt be able to.
