A case involving the child marriage of Syrian refugees is likely to be heard by Germany's Federal Court, after local courts in Bavaria came to contradicting decisions about whether to allow the couple to stay together, German newspaper Die Welt reported.
The marriage of 15-year-old Alia and her 21-year-old husband Amir is set to become a test case for the German justice system, after they migrated from Syria to Germany last year, German newspaper Die Welt reported on Tuesday.
"Alia and Amir are not only cousins: the young couple are also married – since February 2015, according to Syrian Sharia law. The bride was then only 14," reported Die Welt.
