Honour killing story

Attempted murder: 20 November 2012
Residence: Schwanewede (Lower Saxony)
Origin: Turkey / Kurds / Yazidi
Children: 1 daughter (16 years), 1 son (13 years)
Perpetrator: her husband Resat D. (38 years)
Resat wants to impose a forced marriage between his family and his wife. But it fails, and so he forces his wife to break off contact with her family. However, it is said that the woman has become more and more self-assured. Probably she can't bear everything from him anymore.

Therefore he probably attacks her with an axe in November 2012. His children (who are beaten up) and a neighbour overpower him and call the police.

In May 2013, Resat is on trial for attempted murder in the District Court of Verden. In July 2013 the accused will be released. The charge is reduced to an attempt to inflict dangerous bodily harm, in which one of the children is threatened and attacked. The document states as justification: "The accused may have been humiliated by the trial". The outcome is unknown. Gönül is not the real name of the woman.
