France’s interior minister has vowed to deport the family of a Bosnian Muslim girl who was allegedly beaten and had her head shaved for dating a Christian.
The 17-year-old was left with a broken rib and multiple bruises after the attack inÂ BesanĂ§on, 70 miles north of Geneva, on Monday last week.
While investigations are still underway, ministerÂ Gerald Darmanin has warned the girl’s father, mother, uncle and aunt will be deported once the case has left court.
‘They will be taken back to the border because they have no reason to be on our soil,’ he tweeted.
According to the reports, the case began several months ago when the girl, who came to France from Bosnia and Herzegovina with her family in 2017, began dating the Christian boy in secret.
Fearing reprisals from her family, the girl fled to go and live with the 20-year-old boy on August 13,Â Le ParisienÂ reports.
Four days later, she agreed to go back to her family home alongside the boy and his parents to try and reconcile.
The girl told police that her family attacked her, with her relatives kicking and punching her in the head and body.
