Fifth Anniversary of Fadime’s Murder

Published måndag 22 januari 2007 kl 12.09
Memorial in Stockholm in Fadime's memory

Commemorations were held around Sweden on Saturday, the eve of the fifth anniversary of a high-profile honor killing.

On January 21, 2002 Kurdish immigrant Rahmi Sahinhal shot to death his 26 year old daughter Fadime. The men in her family had objected to her having a Swedish boyfriend.

Fadime Sahindal had previously drawn attention to the problems facing young immigrant women here, and gave a prominent speech in the Swedish parliament during a seminar on violence against women.

Following her death successive government have launched programs to combat honor-related violence.
