A father of a Turkish family and 2 of his sons, were indicted in Montbeliard (city in eastern France near Switzerland, part of Doubs) for having beaten up, in the name of Family Honor, their daughter and sister of 17 years as she was caught in the act of sending out a love text (a picture of her in a bra to her boyfriend)
The 55-year old father and 19 & 21-year old sons will be tried on Nov. 21st for “DOMESTIC VIOLENCE. The father is also charged with death threat accusations.
The next day, the girl went to the hospital where she was seen by a social worker. She had bruises and welts notably on her face and went on temporary leave from work for 15 days.
The father and one son admitted to the violence, but said they purposely minimized what could have otherwise been, and they did it as the only way to safeguard the family’s honour. The other son denies having committed any violent act.
The 3 men were arrested 4 days after the fact, and have been placed under arrest and under judicial watch. They are not allowed to have any contact with the daughter.
