court has ordered treatment for a father who allegedly forced his daughter to marry in exchange for a cow in the Korkut village of Ankara
province, according to daily Radikal.
The father, Ali, agreed to give away his daughter for a cow, but when she declined to marry the set groom, Ali forced her to do so through violence and psychological pressure. He reportedly told her that he had “already agreed to the terms and got the cow.” The daughter soon applied to the Ankara
court for protection.
The court ordered the father to visit a medical institution and receive treatment, and also banned him from contacting his daughter or visiting the house she currently lives in. The father is also banned from harming her personal belongings, or her house.
If he refuses to comply with the court orders, the convicted father will serve three to 10 days in prison.
