Mother ‘poisoned son to avoid trip to Syria with jihadi husband’

A mother repeatedly gave her son anti-psychotic drugs and poison in a desperate attempt to avoid being forced to travel to Syria by her jihadi husband, a court has heard.

The 27-year-old woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, deliberately gave the medication to the boy to make him unwell over a period of six weeks between August and October 2015.

On several occasions, while he was treated in hospital, she contaminated intravenous tubes used to administer antibiotics with an unknown noxious substance, believed to have been faeces or sink cleaner.

No words.

    If Justice was truly blind, this should have lead to attempted murder charges.

    • I think so.

      Under Sunni Shafi’i Shari’a law, Reliance of the Traveller† explicitly says that a child can be murdered by a parent without consequence.

      Expect that would be used as an excuse if she was charged with attempted murder and her religion sect lines up.

    Why not just target the husband?

    • Beats me.

        Children aren’t allowed to leave the house and bring back enough income to feed, house and clothe the whole family. At this stage in life a child would be a resource drain not a source.

        Its advantage is that it has no aftertaste.
