Sutri, November 21 - Carabinieri police on
Wednesday stopped a 35-year-old Italian woman from going through
with an ''arranged'' marriage with a younger Moroccan man whose
residence permit was about to expire.
The woman had agreed to marry the man so he could begin the
process of obtaining Italian citizenship and not face expulsion,
according to investigators.
The man and two ''friends'' allegedly involved in the
arranging of the marriage - an Italian and a person of north
African origin - were arrested.
According to investigators, it was the friends who
persuaded the woman, who has psychological problems, to accept
the arranged marriage.
The woman was said to have been under intense pressure and
had been promised a ''dowry'' of 500 euros if she agreed to the
marriage.
Police stopped proceedings just as the civil wedding had
begun in Sutri, a small town in the province of Viterbo, some
60km northwest of Rome.
