Honour Killing in the UK...

One way to stop adultery.
A married Muslim woman allegedly murdered by her father and uncle for having an affair chillingly foretold her death, a jury heard yesterday.

Giving evidence from beyond the grave, Banaz Mahmod told in a video message how she was "really scared" of her father after she broke her arranged marriage.

And less than a month before her death - allegedly in a so-called 'honour killing' - the 20-year-old warned police that her family was plotting to murder her, the Old Bailey was told.

Mrs Mahmod, an Iraqi Kurd whose family were granted asylum in England when she was ten, was garroted with a shoelace, almost certainly in her own home, before her body was stuffed in a suitcase and buried in a back garden, the jury was told.

The killing was ordered by her uncle Ari Agha, 50, at a family meeting, endorsed by her father Mahmod Mahmod, 52, and carried out with assistance of their fellow Kurd Mohamad Hama, who has pleaded guilty to Banaz's murder, the court heard.

Less than a month before her death in January last year, Banaz had told the police and others that her father and uncle were plotting her murder, and two days before she was killed the family staged a failed kidnap of her boyfriend Rahmat Suleimani, it was claimed.

The whole family should be put away for that planning that. They are all the same as the one who did it... first degree charges for all of them.
