Husayn Kassai Biography
Husayn Kassai is a 31-year-old millionaire businessman who claimed that his medical wife had refused to have s*x with him today abandoned his legal offer to annul their marriage after she said she had a text message proving it was consummated.
Husayn Kassai, an Oxford-educated co-founder of London-based tech firm Onfido, wanted a judge to declare his marriage to Niloofar Tabarra, also 31, void, by stating that the couple had never had s*x.
However, Dr. Tabarra denied that her marriage was not consummated and she said that she had a text message showing that they had sex at a hotel in Prague while on vacation.
Instead, the doctor wanted a divorce on the grounds that the relationship had allegedly been characterized by “domestic abuse and coercive control.”
She added that her estranged husband, who studied economics and management at Oxford, had a company worth “millions of pounds” and lawyers said she would not have been able to claim money if the marriage was annulled.
Today, Mr. Kassai accepted the divorce on the grounds that he had behaved unreasonably during the latest round of litigation.
Oxford-educated Husayn Kassai, co-founder of technology firm Onfido, had wanted a judge to declare his marriage to Niloofar Tabarra void by claiming the pair had never had s*x.
A judge who oversaw a virtual public hearing at the Family Division of the High Court in London said the dispute was a “tragedy” for the couple.
Judge Moor, who made no findings on Dr. Tabarra’s allegations related to domestic abuse, heard that the couple married in June 2018 and that the marriage had effectively lasted six months.
He said it was necessary to dissolve the marriage as quickly as possible and resolve the discussions about money.
The judge said that annulment petitions for non-consummation reasons were very rare and caused “great anguish and discomfort.”
Attorney Charlotte Proudman, who represented Dr. Tabarra, told Mr. Judge Moor that Mr. Kassai had originally requested annulment on grounds of non-consummation due to Dr. Tabarra’s “voluntary refusal”.
“Dr. Tabarra opposes the application for annulment and makes it clear that the marriage is consummated once … while he was on vacation in Prague,” she said in a written summary of the case.
A judge who oversaw a virtual public hearing in the Family Division of the High Court in London said the dispute was a ‘tragedy’ for the pair
‘There is a text message from (Mr. Kassai) to (Dr. Tabarra) … where he says,’ Let’s go back to the hotel so we can have even better sex than last night. ‘
Dr. Proudman said that Mr. Kassai and Dr. Tabarra are Muslim.
She said that Dr. Tabarra had been a virgin before the marriage and Mr. Kassai had wanted his estranged wife to undergo a hymen examination to “apparently confirm that she is still a virgin.”
Dr. Proudman said that such a test would have been “very abusive.”
Attorney Sarah Phipps, who represented Mr. Kassai, told the judge that her client was “clear that this marriage was not consummated.”
“There is a case before the court that has become a costly litigation quagmire,” she said, in a written summary of the case.
‘This would be regrettable in any case; it is particularly unfortunate in one involving two young, well-educated people who have no children and who were married for only six months.
“Almost all the points are disputed, almost all the facts are disputed.
That said, the parties agree on one thing: that their marriage was an unhappy mess. Neither of us has a positive word to say about it.
“None of the accusations of the wife against her husband, or anyone else, has been proven and therefore cannot be taken as true.”
