UK Police must learn lessons from failures by German Police that contributed to the ‘honour’ killing of Lareeb Khan

This week, in Germany, the trial of the “honour” killing of Lareeb Khan, a 19 year old, is taking place.

Her father, Asadullah Khan and mother Shazia, are accused of murdering her in the name of “honour”.

It has been reported that Mr Khan told the court that he believed that Lareeb had brought “dishonour” to the family by being in a relationship with a boy he did not approve of. Mr Khan has also said that he wanted Lareeb to have an arranged marriage, like he and her mother had done.
