His MUSLIM girlfriend fears for her life after receiving death threats.
Two men have appeared in court after the suspected lover of a married Muslim woman had acid thrown in his face and was stabbed twice in the back in a possible “honour attack.”
The woman was warned that her own “wellbeing may be in danger”, a source at Scotland Yard told The Times.
Detectives have been told that the man and woman were not in a sexual relationship but were just friends. However, their relationship is said to have upset her family.
The 24-year-old Asian (MUSLIM) victim, believed to be from Denmark, is in a critical but stable condition in a specialist burns unit in Essex. He has lost part of his tongue, been left blind in one eye and has 50 per cent burns and fractures to his face after being attacked in Leytonstone, East London, on July 2.
The two accused, aged 19 and 25, come from East London and are charged with attempted murder. Neither can be named for legal reasons. (Why not, because they are Muslims?) Both men are said to be related to the woman. One is understood to be her brother. TIMES ONLINE UK H/T DEBBIE SCHLUSSEL
