Good news readers. The Guardian reports today that “dedicated teams of senior prosecutors” will be deployed to “honour killing hotspots” around the country. “The move is designed to boost conviction rates and improve protection for victims.”
This has been long needed and I hope more parents will be prosecuted for ‘Retarded Rabbit Syndrome’ (read this explanation). The newspaper also points out: “Under the new Domestic Violence Crime and Victims Act, if a person fails to intervene to protect a family member they too can face justice” – good! Incidentally, I’m now veering between ‘Shame Killings’ and RRS as the new way to describe so-called ‘Honour killings’. What say you?
