A remorseless man who executed his nephew for having an affair with his wife had been seeking punishment for the conduct “magnified by a strong sense of dishonour”, a court has heard.
I'm a bit conflicted here by the penalty. Thirty two years for the murder of a 'not-so-innocent' man? IMO one of the worst things you can do is betray your family. Maybe the killer's anger should have been directed more towards his wife because she was the one who was cheating (the most). It also sounds like they were given fair warning to stop.
If you have a belief it shouldn't change just because you move to a new country, should it? It's also clear that the whole family lived by the doctrine of their former country/religion, so should be judged by it to a degree. I get that people need to live by the laws of the country they live in but they should also live by their beliefs. Dunno. I think the penalty will be appealed.
*BTW, I think all murderers should be locked away forever, but they aren't, so penalties should otherwise be relative.
