Tyskland: Domer giver lettere dom i sag om æresdrab, grundet religiøs og kulturel baggrund


"In February 2013 a German-Afghan killed his 22-year-old ex-girlfriend and her unborn baby because she did not want an abortion. A court in Wiesbaden sentenced the man to life in prison. The judge denied to convict the man of severe gravity of guilt" (which makes it more difficult to apply for parole) due to the cultural and religious background of the man. The judge's decission has reawakened the debate on "cultural discount" in connection with "honor killings"."
