Testimony 126 out of 225 in the murder case Narges Achikzei
The victim didn’t get her salary paid for three months I heard and she dragged her boss to the court for making her do un-paid work. The family I was talking about also said her boss has threatened her to with-draw her case because that wouldn’t be good for his business’ reputation. So the Police isn’t sure yet and investigations are going on. The girl was engaged for five years and if her family would have been against her then it wouldn’t have taken them five bloody years to kill her you idiot!

Human rights activists believe that 100,000 honour killings are carried out every year, most of which are not reported to the authorities and some are even deliberately covered up by the authorities themselves, for example because the perpetrators are good friends with local policemen, officials or politicians. Violence against girls and women remains a serious problem in Pakistan, India, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Iran, Serbia and Turkey.
