Sweden: Man in court , for killing a father who refused to murder his wife and daughters, because they shook the hands of men.

(Grycksbo)  A 50 year old man is currently in court in Sweden on charges of murdering one of his male relatives for offending his honour.

It transpires that the thug (A clan leader no less)  in the dock, took offence with how  in 2015 the murdered man’s daughters, greeted young men  who had just completed a marathon with handshakes. He had a chat with their father and demanded he kill them in which to regain the family honour. He refused and In reply he cut off all contact with the older family member.

In May this year a number of people went to the popular fishing lake Stensjön outside Grycksbo in Dalarna. During the evening a fight occurred and the father of the two girls who the clan leader had demanded he sort out his daughters for honour was found dead after been stabbed in the neck with a pair of scissors. According to the accused, the younger man attacked him when he left the party and whilst searching for a rock in which to defend himself with, he just happened to find a pair of scissors. Naturally he is claiming he is the victim here, however when the wife of the dead man was interviewed by the police she revealed a motive for the killing:
"It is part of the culture of honour that the family head / clan leader thinks something and leaves an assignment to the father or brother and if they do not perform the assignment, you are killing the father / brother because they have not taken care of themselves,"
That angle has also been repeated by the Prosecutor Gun-Britt Strøm who has confirmed that the murder appears to be honorary-related.

The trail continues.
