The 22-year-old woman was shocked when she received her divorce papers in the mail because she had no idea that she had been registered as married to a Pakistani man for the past year.
The womans wallet was stolen in Oslo three years ago. She claims the man used her ID to arrange a fake marriage, reported the Norwegian paper Dagbladet.
According to the divorce papers, they got married at Islamic Cultural Centre in Oslo in November of 2002. The 22-year-old woman said she thinks the man used a Norwegian woman as a stand-in at the actual wedding ceremony.
«Im in shock,» the woman explained. «I have never married and I didnt understand what was happening.»
Imam Maulana Mehboob-ur-Rehman in the congregation said that they are very careful that the people who get married have their papers in order and has no idea how this could have happened. He said he thinks the man has tricked both the woman and the congregation.
The 22-year-old is trying to get the marriage declared invalid. She has filed a formal complaint, but the police have dropped the case because they have not managed to locate the man in question. The woman and her lawyer have not managed that either. The man allegedly operates with several names in Norway.
