|Calling Switebull, Calling Switebull!!!
A bit of news from my neck of the woods, that might be of general interest:
Today 9 persons of a family/freinds bunch was convicted for the murder of an 18 year old girl and the wounding of her similarly young houseband last year.
Not only the butcher - her brother - but her father (for ordering the hit), mother aunt plus miscelleneous relation for the hunt to assasinate the pakistani-danish, pretty woman, that followed her heart, and not the will of her family, in her marriage.
The jury deliberated about 24 hours. Penalties will be dealt out tomorrow.
It is the first time in Northern Europe that not only the murderer (generally a male member of the family under 18, due to fact they get off lighter); but the whole conspiracy is convicted.
On a personal note: I can say with conviction they had the best defence, as one of the defending attourneys is my own lawyer.
I think, as we could all be called for jury duty, that it is essential that this ruling be known as widely as possible.
I supply the link from the world famous newspaper MORGENAVISEN JYLLANDS-POSTEN:
And now for the obligatory snide remark against Sweden: Yesterday in a similar case only the brother (a juvenile) was convicted.
