Birmingham man jailed for assault and coercive control
With the Norfolk Safeguarding Adults Board hosting some workshops shortly on the subject of coercive control, a victim of assault and coercive control speaks out about her experience. Zeenit Bibi said that she didn't think that anybody would believe her, which is why she left it so long to report it. She said that, to the outside world, it looked as though she had the perfect family.
Her husband, Aziz Rehman, regularly beat her and would only allow her to leave their home in Birmingham when on the school run. He wedged twigs in the front door whenever he went out so that he could tell if she left the house.
Rehman has been sentenced to three years and nine months in prison. Read more here.
