Not saying it was,ItÂ´s just that so-called honour killings are spreading over to Germany where thereÂ´s 3 million Turks,and funnily enough Germany is blocking TurkeyÂ´s entry to the EEC strongly.A German judge has just sentenced a father to life imprisonment for inciting his son to kill his daughter,normally the youngest son does the killing to get a lighter sentence.Seems that the judges are getting wise to the trick!
Isolated incedent? Only in terms of the method. Honour killing's are not uncommon. Even here in the UK Police believe we average 12 a year and there are a hundred plus unsolved murders believed to be connected to honour killings.
Honour killing is apparently much more common in Turkey than here, so no its not really an isolated case.
Yes but Fred Wests family thought it was OK to keep people chained up in a cellar with their knee caps removed so they couldnt escape, until they were killed and placed in storage under the cellar floor. I think your real point is a wider issue about family law as being widespread in Turkey - a kind of Sharia law, perhaps. But the fact is that kind of thing is actually illegal in Turkey and the authorities took a dim view of it. And it's not so long ago that there were cannibals practicing their catering skills in the UK.
