The forcibly separated: “They both wanted intercourse”


Khonesty is troublesome in Afghanistan. Not to mention the urge for sex. It is with life at stake if two young people are caught in the act. You risk being stoned.

A 16-year-old girl could tell the asylum authorities when she came to Denmark in November 2015 with her 17-year-old husband and his family. She was on the run from her own parents who wanted to marry her off to a man the age of her father.

“It is a general problem in Afghanistan that the girl is not being asked if she wants to get married,” she told the asylum authorities in 2016, saying that “she was afraid her father would get angry and kill her if she said no to marrying the older man ‘.

Nevertheless, the two young Afghans were separated in Denmark like 22 other couples with reference to an instruction without exceptions, which has become clearly illegal and can send the then Minister of Foreign Affairs Inger Støjberg (V) in the Supreme Court. The cases of the forcibly separated young people are now included in the Instruction Commission’s report.
