Muslim husband accused of honour killing plans to return to UK
Samia Shahid, 28, from Bradford, died in Pakistan in July 2016 under mysterious circumstances
Wednesday 31 July - A husband who was arrested over the honour killing of his ex-wife is planning to return the UK with his new British spouse, it has been reported.
Samia Shahid, 28, from Bradford, West Yorks., died in Pakistan in July 2016 after travelling to see her father, whom she was told was seriously ill.
Muhammad Shakeel, who is her first cousin and currently out on bail, was arrested three years ago for the beauty therapist’s alleged murder.
Police later said he confessed to strangling her, but confessions obtained while under arrest in Pakistan are not admissible in criminal proceedings.
The case still hasn’t gone to trial three years later.
Ms Shahid’s MP Naz Shah has now written to the leader of Pakistan after finding out the alleged killer might try to come back to the UK with his new wife.
She wrote it was a 'very worrying and very alarming' situation and she hopes the Home Secretary would block Shakeel’s entry to the UK.
Mr Shahid’s family had arranged for her to marry Shakeel in February 2012, in the Northern Punjab region.
She later obtained a divorce under Sharia law, before marrying Syed Mukhtar Kazim in Leeds, and moving to Dubai to live with him.
Ms Shahid was later told her father was gravely ill and flew to Islamabad.
This was against the advice of her second husband, who believed this was a trick because her family expressed shame towards her for divorcing Shakeel.
She was later found dead in her cousin’s home in Punjab, Pakistan, six days after arriving.
Police in Pakistan launched a murder investigation after it was originally suggested Ms Shahid died of natural causes.
Mr Kazim claims his wife was murdered by her family because they rejected their marriage, which led to the arrest of her father Chaudhry Muhammad Shahid and Shakeel.
Author's comment: He will most likely have no problem getting back into the UK, and this makes Britain’s priorities clear, if they weren’t clear already.
