Taskforce Calls for Urgent Steps to Prevent ‘Honour Violence’

A commission set up to look into so-called ‘honour crimes’ has urged immediate steps toward preventing such violence, which is based on traditional concepts of shame among some ethnic groups.

In its report, submitted to Interior Minister Anne Holmlund and Migration Minister Astrid Thors on Tuesday, the panel calls for training of officials to recognise and intervene to prevent such crimes.

It says there should also be education about how to help the victims of honour-related violence and bring perpetrators to justice.

Those in need of training include police, prosecutors, judges and teachers as well as health and social workers, says the report.

Honour crimes can include physical, sexual, emotional, religious and financial coercion and violence. Unlike in neighbouring Sweden, authorities are so far unaware of any ‘honour killings’ in Finland. However, honour-related violence is on the rise.

  1. All this piece-meal stuff on honour-killings/attacks, rape and forced prostitution of white girls, enforced halal meat, mozlem unemployment etc, etc, nothing is going to work unless izlam is outlawed. They cannot stop one thing and allow others. Mozzies will scweam islamofobia and the powers that be will cave. Ban izlam altogether.
