Why only five years for murder? Probably because it was an honor killing. Many Muslim countries, including “moderate” Jordan, have substantially reduced penalties for honor murders as opposed to other murders. A man who kills his wife or daughter for honor gets a slap on the wrist. And the son’s participation is sadly typical. Aqsa Parvez’s brother worked with her father to kill her, and Islam Said, the brother of Amina and Sarah Said, apparently helped lure the girls home after they had escaped, so that their father could murder them.
An Emirati in Fujairah, who was found guilty of killing his Emirati wife, has been sentenced to five years in prison along with his Asian partner, while his son who was also part of the crime got one-and-a-half year jail term. They are all obliged to pay the blood money.
However, the eldest son of the deceased said he does not want the blood money, while the other sons requested that the culprits pay the blood money and be punished.
According to Al Madina Police Station, the murder took place on one of the farms in Fujairah. Investigations led the police officials to three suspects – the deceased’s husband, her son and a Pakistani man.
The Emirati took his wife to the worker’s room on the farm where his Pakistani partner and son were waiting. Once she entered the room, they all beat her and then the husband tied her up while her son and the Pakistani man stabbed her to death, according to court records.
