So called “honour culture” and “honour violence” cases are becoming increasingly common in western European countries, such as Sweden where nearly 1,000 honour-related crimes were reported in 2020 alone with France reeling from the revelations of one such case.
Breitbart reported that in mid-February 2017 in Gorges, Loire-Atlantique in western France, a 16-year-old Chechen boy was arrested for stabbing his 15-year-old sister after he had accused her of “living European” and “not respecting the culture of his country”.
Not only was the girl stabbed by her Muslim brother, when taken into care after his arrest it was revealed that she had been regularly raped and sexually abused by her Chechen father for several years.
The 60-year-old defendant, who describes himself as Muslim and only moderately observant, had come to France in 2010 and was granted political asylum after claiming he was a fierce opponent of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
French media has reported that he has denied the allegations of sexual abuse. The trial for his son’s stabbing case, meanwhile, begins on October 6th.
