A schoolgirl forced by her parents to marry her cousin in Lebanon because she was raped when she was fourteen was saved from the ordeal.
The girl, now 15, from western Sydney, was brought to Beirut after allegedly raped by her neighbor because her parents thought she was no longer & # 39; pure & # 39; used to be.
But when the teenager refused to marry her cousin, her uncle stunned her with sedatives, raped her and threatened to shoot her.
The uncle, who was later imprisoned for his actions against his cousin, said to her: & If you want nothing to do with my son, you can get into my bed. & # 39;

The young teenager, who cannot be called, was saved by New South Wales and the federal police.
Her case was previously investigated as a forced marriage but changed to & # 39; arranged & # 39 ;, the Daily telegram reported.
The girl claimed that she was raped by her 21-year-old neighbor after she got into his car in November 2017.
The aggravated assault allegations against the neighbor were dropped by the court.
The girl was caught skipping school so that she could visit a doctor to see if she was a virgin and if she had become pregnant.
Her father later said that she could not get married in Australia because she was no longer a virgin – and committed to send her overseas.
She fled with her parents on Christmas Eve and begged the police to help her because her parents would send her to Lebanon for an arranged marriage.
The girl found a hiding place in parks, a car and with friends when she escaped several times.
She and two friends finally found emergency homes on 25 February.
But on the same day her father had called one of her friends and bribed the girl with money so that she could meet him at the police station.
She and her older sister, who was 17 at the time, were flown to Beirut two days later with a flight in Emirates.
The Australian Federal Police warned Detective Senior Constable Tara Chapman – of the NSW Police Abuse and Sex Crimes Squad – about the girl who is on a warning & # 39; child in danger & # 39; used to be.
But AFP officers could not intervene because the girl was already on the flight from Dubai to Beirut.

The uncle forced the girl and her cousin to sit in a room and talk & # 39; when she refused to marry him.
The cousin had even taken her flowers in an attempt to straighten & # 39; her.
Because she was adamant, she would not marry him, her uncle then told her to & # 39; get into bed & # 39; where he kissed her, but she resisted.
Detective Chapman said the girl had described that Uncle & # 39; is smelly and sweaty and could only scream & # 39 ;.
She remembered how she was & # 39; paralyzed & # 39; felt & & # 39; could not move & # 39; because her uncle would stun her every night with a tranquilizer. She would wake up in bed bleeding and in pain.
The uncle also gave the 15-year-old pill the next day so that she would not become pregnant and threatened to shoot her when she told someone what had happened.
The girl and the sister later found themselves alone in the house and managed to flee.
The couple had contacted their aunt who brought the girls to the police station and the uncle was arrested.
The authorities were unaware of her whereabouts until she signed up on March 31 through her uncle on her Instagram.
The AFP organized emergency flights for the girls to return to Sydney and was met by their parents on April 7.
The victim of the rape was taken to the doctor to see if they & # 39; purely & # 39; used to be.
Detective Chapman saw on Instagram that the girl had become engaged to another man – a local, whom the parents had arranged to marry her.
She and her older sister, who was 17 at the time, were flown to Beirut two days later on an EK415 Emirates flight
But the engagement was called off when the girl's future mother-in-law insisted that she wear a hijab.
Before being exiled to Lebanon, Detective Chapman had met the girl and told her that she & # 39; personal police officer & # 39; used to be.
Detective Chapman had told the girl's father and mother that it was not her fault that she had been raped by the 21-year-old neighbor.
& # 39; She is a very, very strong girl. She was constantly hit and came back and stood up straight, & said Chapman.
Today the girl, who is now studying at TAFE, is said to have an on-and-off relationship with her parents.
