Fear after husband jailed for ‘honour killing’

Karen McVeigh; 19/12/09

A woman whose husband has been jailed for murdering their 15-year-old daughter 10 years ago in an ”honour killing” is living in fear of reprisals after she gave devastating evidence against him. Tulay Goren was killed in January 1999 after running away from home to live with her boyfriend, a fellow Turkish Kurd twice her age, whom her family disapproved of because he was from a different branch of Islam. On Thursday, at the end of a dramatic and emotional 11-week trial, Mehmet Goren was given a life sentence, with a minimum of 22 years, for killing his daughter after kidnapping, drugging and tying her up.
