Skip to comments.Lebanon: Man kills daughter to regain his ‘honor’
Posted on 01/08/2003 2:27:42 PM PST by knighthawk
A man killed his daughter at dawn Tuesday and then surrendered to the police. He claimed that his crime was an attempt to win back his honor after suspecting his daughter of behaving inappropriately.
Police reports said that the man, identified only as M.F., killed his daughter while she was asleep at his home in Roueis, a southern Beirut suburb.
The man admitted to having committed the premeditated crime, saying his daughter had brought him dishonor because of her bad conduct, the reports added.
He also said that he killed his unmarried daughter after having learned that she was pregnant and was suffering from pains in her abdomen, adding that her conduct had become the talk of the neighborhood.
Accordingly, it was necessary to win back the honor lost to him and his family, the man said.
Sources said that Mount Lebanon chief public prosecutor, Walid Qadi, had ordered the arrest of the killer and entrusted a coroner with examining the body of the victim.
The coroner, after conducting an autopsy, reported that the victim had not been pregnant, but had lost her virginity.
The prosecutor also ordered the arrest of another man who had been sexually involved with the victim but said the relationship did not date back more than two months. There were conflicting reports about whether the father had cut her into pieces.
However, sources close to the public prosecution in Mount Lebanon denied reports that the father had cut his daughter up. They said that the man had drunk his morning coffee and attacked his daughter while she was asleep.
If people want on or off this list, please let me know.
Well, for once the news
got something right. This guy is
only an MF...
Ya beat me to it!
The worthless esteem of his fellow humans is apparently of greater value to him, than his own child. Not to mention the wrath of God.
He's lived here for quite some time and is a US citizen. Nice guy >usually< BUT sveral years ago his daughter, a real beauty and homecoming queen at a well respected local Catholic high school, found out she was pregnant a monh or so after graduation. He blew out on her, cleaned out her room and tossed her and all her belongings literally out in the street.
He also warned his wife and the rest of his family that there was to be NO contact with the poor girl.
The boy who was the father of the child married her right away, they got jobs and found a modest apartment. The baby was born healthy and I'm happy to say everything worked out quite well for the new couple EXCEPT that even after all these years my friend still refuses to acknowledge his daughter and granddaughter. He has relented a bit and lets his wife visit occasionally but as far as he's concerned his daughter is dead.
And he won't even discuss it with me or anyone else. Afghans are a VERY stubborn people.
Do you suppose that may be part of the reason they have prospered so much in the past 1,000 years? < /sarcasm>
I work for a Dutch Company and we do business world wide. The story is often told of a 'factory' visit from some mid east clients.
They were to witness the testing of some equipment on a Tuesday. They were met at Schipol on Saturday and taken to Amsterdam for the routine tourist visits. They arrived at the factory on Wednesday, having spent most of three days fornicating as often as they could.
When advised the testing had occurred, they signed the papers and asked to be taken back to Amsterdam.
That's just jackass stupid on the "stubborn" Afghan father's part. What a putz.
A man after my own heart! (But I throw out the lemon, after it's given me the Jose' idea, and do it straight)
