A wife kept prisoner in her own home for 16 years feared she would die at the hands of her abusive husband who imprisoned her in
their home and subjected her to vicious beatings, Daily Mail UKreports.
Aziz Rehman ‘ran his house like a prison’ while he routinely beat and belittled Zeenit Bibi.
The 36-year-old only escaped after she confided in a friend while her husband was on a ten-day break in Greece – where, she later
found out, he was getting married to another woman.
Shop owner Rehman, from Birmingham, denied coercive and controlling behaviour and assaulting his wife, but was found guilty by a jury last month.
He was jailed for three years and nine months years at Birmingham Crown Court today, following a two-week trial.
