Woman raped before "honor killing": court

LONDON (Reuters) - A Kurdish woman was brutally raped, stamped on and strangled by members of her family and their friends in an "honor killing" carried out at her London home because she had fallen in love with the wrong man.

Banaz Mahmod, 20, was subjected to the 2-1/2 hour ordeal before she was garroted with a bootlace. Her body was stuffed into a suitcase and taken about 100 miles to Birmingham where it was buried in the back garden of a house.

Her badly decomposed body was found in April 2006, three months after the killing.

Last month a jury found her father Mahmod Mahmod, 52, and his brother Ari Mahmod, 51, guilty of murder after a three-month trial. Their associate Mohamad Hama, 30, had earlier admitted killing her.

On Thursday at a pre-sentence hearing for Hama, the Old Bailey heard details about Banaz's last moments.

Prosecutors said the three convicted men, along with two other suspects who are still at large, had carried out the killing fearing that the authorities were closing in on them.

They believed Banaz had brought shame on the family by leaving her husband, an Iraqi Kurd she had been forced to marry at 17, and falling in love with Rahmat Suleimani, an Iranian Kurd.

Her former unnamed partner had raped her as well as repeatedly beating her, the court heard.

Hama, who prosecutors said had been a ringleader in the murder, was caught by listening devices talking to a friend in prison about the murder.

In the recordings, transcripts of which were relayed to the court, Hama and his friend are hearing laughing as he described how she was killed with Banaz's uncle "supervising".

"I was kicking and stamping on her neck to get the soul out. I saw her stark naked, only wearing pants or underwear," Hama is recorded as saying.

His lawyers say there is no evidence to support the prosecution's claims.

The decision to kill her came after a meeting on January 23 -- the day before she was murdered -- when the family decided to take action before the police could foil their attempts, said prosecutor Victor Temple.

Hama is due to be sentenced on Friday with Mahmod Mahmod and his brother, Ari.

I guess that there was an “honor rape” before the “honor killing”.

Cheap labor for big business and taxable serfs to prop up the cradle to grave entitlements system of a European society that no longer has children.

Same motivation as supporting illegal immigration here really. Except that Mexicans aren't quite so violence prone.

Some years ago, I met a woman from Iran who had been there during the revolution. She told me a 14 year old girl had refused to go under the veil. The mullahs gang-raped her before killing her because they said they “didn’t want her to enter the next life as a virgin.” So, honor rape, yes. Allah akbar!

We wish to bring such time honored traditions that go back thousands of years to our land before they are lost and liberal anthropologists are robbed of the opportunity of preserving such cultures before they are lost. We need to preserve these practices in our multiculturalist mosaic so future generations of liberal anthropologists will have a chance to study them./s

Cair is to be ignored, and their pretestaions ignored. They do not condemn this. Cair’s silence is an endorsement of this policy of death. BTW, the name Mahmod is actually the name Mohammed, just a different sort of slurring of the word.

If Cair doesn’t care, then I don’t Cair.

She had gone to the police four or five times but they didn’t take her seriously. Cops now under investigation as well.

Not that I believe in Heaven, but if there were such a place I'm pretty sure performing this deed would disqualify you from getting in. Savages.

In their twisted belief system, it’s wrong to kill a virgin. So rape the young woman first - then kill her. Then it’s all right. It’s a common occurance in Iran’s jails. If a young woman is about to be executed, and if there are doubts concerning her virginity, then she can expect to get raped.

Not if our elected politicians keep trying to sell us out to NAU / SPP and hold dinners to honor this moon rock gawd. The Real God can't be too happy with the latter. We need real conservative politicians who listen to what we say, not tell us how to think and fall in line with whatever personal self-serving agendas they might have.

Islam is truly the religion of Satan. Only those who follow a creed of evil could do these sorts of things in the name of “honor”.

"Yes. Yes, and yes."

The way the Government is indoctrinating kids today - they won't have the sense, strength or spine for the task..

If it's to be done - it will have to be done before all the remaining men in the nation die off.

It really is amazing that the feminazis can go on all day about how intolerant the western male is, then when something like this comes up all we hear is silence. Muslim men are the most anti-feminist pigs on the planet, and the so called ‘defenders of women’ are applauding their satanic cult of abuse.
