An 18 year old man, Wiam Bomali, killed his 8 year old sister, in order to preemptively wash his honour, before she goes ahead and becomes an adult and disgraces the entire family with her relations. The man’s action lead to the girl losing all the decades left of her life, and about 45 days from the man’s his life behind bars.
The culprit declared that his deed has come as a cautionary measure, based on the fact that he knows himself well enough, and if any of his and his sister’s genes were alike, then she will definitely end up doing something shameful disgracing the whole tribe.
Preliminary investigation showed that the man has been following the activities of his sister for quite a while, and saw her playing some games which involved dolls, males and females, in addition to installing “the Sims” on her mother’s phone, and playing with a character living on her own and dating her neighbour.
Wiam says in his statement “I tried to give her the benefit of the doubt after having seen what I’ve seen, but her actions left me no choice, I saw her hugging her teddy bear, calling him sweet names, and then she put it next to her in bed. I lost it then, I could not take it anymore, and I killed her, and cut up that teddy bear with a knife and saved my tribe’s honour”.
And he adds “I put a matrix of every direction my sister would lead and the dangers of keeping her alive, and it turned out that I had to get rid of her instantly. That would also save a lot of the money which would have went to raising her and have better gone instead into buying me a car”.
