A mother from Birmingham duped her teenage daughter into travelling to Pakistan before forcing her to marry a man 16 years her senior, a court has heard.
The woman, who faces two counts of forced marriage and is also charged with perjury, told the 17-year-old girl she was being treated to a family holiday. But it transpired she planned for her to marry her new husband's nephew, a 33-year-old Pakistani national, jurors were told.
Once taken abroad she was confined to the house and subjected to beatings while her mother threatened to burn her passport if she did not comply with her wishes, it is alleged.
Neither the mother nor daughter can be identified for legal reasons.
