Authorities have taken the first step towards deporting a Lebanese man accused of marrying a 12 year old girl in NSW.
The 26 year-old was arrested in February and charged with 25 counts of sexual intercourse with a child.
He had been in Australia for six months on a student visa, which has been cancelled.
Immigration Minister Scott Morrison said the man was being held in immigration detention.
