Sometimes the pressure from the public and the media increases the chance of tunnel vision, says speaker Harro Kras. He cites as an example the investigation into the murder of a 23-year-old Afghan woman from Zeist. She died in December 2009 after she had been set on fire. "The media were on top of it. Experts were queuing up to give their views on this so-called honour killing. Meanwhile, a suspect woman from the circle of friends is on trial for this murder, in which the motive of an honour killing is clearly not on the agenda. The case shows the strength of the investigation team. It continued to take a critical look at all scenarios.



She has already reported to the police four times because she was threatened. The perpetrator is not an Afghan.

Dear journalist of Elsevier, above you write that honour killings are common in Afghan. Well, on behalf of God, I wonder where this misinformation comes from. I myself am an Afghan woman and I knew the victim well, and the perpetrator is not her ex-husband, or someone from her family, but a schizophrenic saddish beast who belongs behind bars for the rest of his life. She has already reported to the police four times because she was threatened. The perpetrator is not an Afghan.

The story that honour killings have nothing to do with Islam must be told to this Afghan woman who has been set on fire for the honour of her family in the town of Zeist.

The story that honour killings have nothing to do with Islam must be told to this Afghan woman who has been set on fire for the honour of her family in the town of Zeist. This only because she wanted to marry a man of her own choice, apparently she did not want to submit to the will of her family. This tells me enough about submission.

Afghan, then. Many cases are called 'honour killing', but they are not at all. I know that case a little bit. I am not easily saddened by heavy criminal cases anymore, but this is a very gruesome end. I have researched 2 real honour killings (murder), but these are really rare occurrences... And honour killings are not Islam either, also a misunderstanding says Mark Lauriks, Senior Advisor Strategy at the Ministry of Justice and Security.



Did that ex-boss accuse her and say things to her husband? I do not know the guy, but he really deserves to be slapped.

Did that ex-boss accuse her and say things to her husband? I do not know the guy, but he really deserves to be slapped. I hate such people, and then I hate a Dutchman who knows nothing about us and our culture and just causes problems. You read news, hear stories of people about what and how, and at the end you find out that they were an acquaintance of you. I would like to say that these stupid journalists are lying. The murderer, the ex-boss, is still at large. I do not know, but he deserves life in any case.



Everyone in Narges’ vicinity knew that she would rather not marry the Afghan man the parents had chosen for her, that she wanted to marry a man of her own choice and that she was in love with a Dutch man.

Ex boss
Everyone in Narges' vicinity knew that she would rather not marry the Afghan man the parents had chosen for her, that she wanted to marry a man of her own choice and that she was in love with a Dutch man. The police have lied a great deal about this murder in the media. I notified the Utrecht Police about fiancée Mehraban and lawyer Ruijzendaal as shot-callers for the murdering of Narges with fire.



I have two suspicions: Either the killers are islamophobic or someone who loved her and could not get her.

Citizen
I heard sad news on Ustad adat's show the other day. A young Afghan (23) from the Netherlands (Utrecht), named Nargiz, was sprayed with gasoline and set on fire by cowardly sneaky figures, after which she later died of her injuries. She was/was engaged and a student. Their wedding was scheduled for December 20. According to Ustad Sadat, this is what happened: The doorbell rang and a postman told her to come down from the 8th floor and accept her package. She went downstairs but found no one at the entrance. Afterwards she went back up to the apartment and just as she opened the elevator door to go into her apartment, she was held by two men, one of whom poured gasoline over her and set her on fire. I have two suspicions: Either the killers are islamophobic or someone who loved her and could not get her.
