Honour killing story

born: ca. 1992
Attempted murder: 29 June 2017
Place of residence: Rickenbach (Baden-Württemberg)
Origin: Afghanistan
Children: 3
Perpetrator: her separated husband (at act ca. 28 y.)
Bahar is probably 11 when she is married in Afghanistan to her 16-year-old cousin. One year later a child is born and dies. At the age of 13 or 14 she has her next child. The family lives temporarily in Iraq. The man abuses his wife. Probably this is why Bahar wants to go to Germany.

The family arrives in Southern Germany in 2015 and applies for asylum. The man does not want to accept that women in Germany are treated like humans and not like dogs. He isolates his wife, she is not even allowed to talk to other women. When he repeatedly threatens to kill her, she separates and moves to a refugee home in Rickenbach. Her husband stays in Bad Säckingen.

On June 29, 2017 he passes Bahar in front of the house and attacks her with a knife. Even when the blade on the skull breaks, he doesn't let go of it. Residents of the refugee shelter intervene. The perpetrator flees, but is arrested shortly afterwards at the bus station.

In December 2017 the trial before the Regional Court of Waldshut-Tiengen begins. The perpetrator's family continues to threaten Bahar with death. Therefore, during the trial she is only connected via video. She testifies that the mother and siblings of the accused had urged her husband to commit murder.

The perpetrator and victim probably do not know their year of birth. The perpetrator states his age as approximately 28 or 29. The victim with 24-26 years.

Shortly before Christmas the verdict is: 6 years and 6 months imprisonment for attempted manslaughter. Presumably the perpetrator is deported during the detention. What happens to his wife and children remains open. The victim is awarded 15,000 euros in compensation for pain and suffering. However, it cannot be assumed that the perpetrator will pay. Bahar is not the real name of the woman.
