Defrim & Shpetim
born: 1958 and 1987
stabbed: 29 January 2013
Residence: Neumarkt (near Nuremberg)
Origin: Kosovo
Perpetrator: Sejdi K., the ex-husband of his daughter/sister (44 years)
In 1994 Sejdi and Stresa get married. Stresa's family is considered well integrated. Maybe the wedding is about a residence permit for Sejdi. He sporadically works as a varnish man. The family mainly lives on welfare.

Sejdi collects 7 previous convictions in 10 years, is in prison several times. He is extremely violent. From the marriage is a son, born in 1999. Even during pregnancy there are beatings. Stresa doesn't get any support from her family.

The Kosovo-Albanian considers his wife and child to be his property. After years of abuse, Stresa divorces in September 2012 and flees with the child to a women's shelter. The marriage is divorced as a hardship case without a divorce year. Sejdi decides in revenge to kill her male family members. Murder is threatened, also by other countrymen from Kosovo.

A hearing will be held in January 2013. A week later, Sejdi gets access to his ex-wife's house under a pretext. There he meets his ex-father-in-law and ex-brother-in-law. He pulls a knife and first stabs the eldest, then his son. Both bleed to death.

In January 2014 the trial will start before the Nuremberg jury court. The relatives of the victims testify that they still feel threatened by the accused. Sejdis lawyers plead self-defense. The ex-wife testifies that the perpetrator was brutal and aggressive and hit her in front of her son. He didn't go to work, lived on welfare. After the divorce, he had sworn to kill her male family members.

Sejdi has been sentenced to life imprisonment. The particular seriousness of the guilt is established. After the verdict there are riots in court. The names of the two victims are not known.

Shot dead: 16 January 2013
Residence: Berlin-Neukölln

Mehmet Ö. is an unemployed hairdresser and musician in Berlin. His girlfriend Nura is from Bulgaria and has a daughter who probably lives in Bulgaria and only came to Germany shortly before the crime.

In the summer of 2011, Nura is getting a divorce. Mehmet threatens her with death if she does not return to him. Nura sues him. The trial for attempted coercion will be held in February 2013.

In January, Nura and her sister open a bakery (or snack bar) in Berlin-Neukölln. Mehmet is lurking in front of the shop.

In the morning of 16 January 2013 he shoots his ex-girlfriend in the head several times. He also shoots her sister Gülten. She dies after an emergency operation in the hospital. It is unclear whether Nura's daughter witnessed the crime. Mehmet was arrested outside the shop.

Honour killing story: Susanne (2013)

Honour killing story

Susanne
born: 1965
Assassinated: 11 January 2013
Residence: Bad Krozingen (near Freiburg)
Origin: Victim: Germany; Perpetrator: Turkey
Children: 3 (of which 1 together)
Perpetrator: her divorced husband (32 years)
For some reason Susanne marries the 16 year younger Ali, who lives in Turkey, in 2003. Maybe it was a holiday flirtation, which was followed by a marriage and about a year later the resettlement of the man in Germany. The two have a child (7 years old) together. Susanne probably has two more children (20 and 21 years) from a previous relationship.

In 2012 the couple breaks up, Ali moves to Offenburg. He doesn't work, but drives a Mercedes. They say he used to work in a metal company.

In the afternoon of 11 January 2013 Ali invades the former shared apartment and attacks Susanne and her new partner with an axe. The man can flee wounded, the woman dies. There are probably still neighbors in the apartment, they too can flee. Then Ali sprays gasoline and sets it on fire, probably to cover his tracks. He flees on foot, the car stops in front of the door.

The next day, after a tip from the local residents, the perpetrator is arrested in a cellar in Freiburg. All three children are believed to have gone to Susanne's first divorced husband.

In October the trial starts before the regional court of Freiburg. The charge is murder, attempted murder and arson. Ali says he tried to get a chainsaw from the basement, then he saw his wife arm in arm with another man, then something snapped in his head.

In October 2013, the perpetrator will be sentenced to life imprisonment for manslaughter, attempted murder and arson. It also came out in court that he had announced the crime to a friend. He was in hospital, asked a nurse to call the police. But the case came to nothing.

Honour killing story: Pregnant woman strangled and burned in Haarlem

Honour killing story

Pregnant woman
born: 1977
strangled / burned: 11 September 2019
Residence: Haarlem (North Holland)
Origin: Afghanistan
Children: 3 (2, 5 and 7 years)
Perpetrator: her husband Bashir K. (44 years)
Bashir K. lives more than 15 years in the Netherlands and works as a taxi driver.

On Wednesday evening September 11th 2019 explosions will be heard in a flat on the Rudolf Steinerstraat in Haarlem and the flat is on fire, causing 48 houses to be evacuated.

Bashir K. was standing further down the street watching while the emergency workers were busy. After identifying himself as the occupant of the burnt-out house, police officers arrested him as a suspect in arson. This charge was later extended to murder after his wife's remains were found and identified in the burnt-out house.

According to local residents, the man set fire to his 7 month pregnant wife in the bedroom because he was supposed to have another girlfriend or because he didn't think he was the man responsible for the pregnancy because they hadn't had sex for a long time. He would have placed their 3 joint children with his brother prior to the attack.

Bashir K. doesn't seem to explain much. The prosecution argues states that they assume a scenario in which the pregnant woman was strangled by Bashir K. and that he then set the apartment on fire.

The prosecution can’t say anything about the case because the suspect is in restraints. She does confirm that the man lived in the apartment. He’s being held for the time being.

No, yes, of course there is a suspicion that it might have something to do with gas, but we don’t know that for sure either, so the colleagues of the police are also going to investigate this case.

Fire department
Around 11 o'clock tonight we received a message at the emergency center of the city that there might have been an explosion here in the flat behind us. When the fire brigade arrived it soon became clear that it was a pretty fierce fire on the second floor. The fire brigade immediately started to put out the fire. In the meantime, we evacuated all the houses around it. In the meantime, the fire has gone out and the residents have been taken care of elsewhere in a neighbourhood centre and we are currently checking all the houses on construction etcetera.

Is there something to be said about a cause: "No, yes, of course there is a suspicion that it might have something to do with gas, but we don't know that for sure either, so the colleagues of the police are also going to investigate this case.

Has to do with new refreshing cultures. It’s strange that 98% of these cases come from certain cultures… and I’m not talking about the sober Dutch culture.
