JORDAN: COURT OF CASSATION REDUCES DEATH SENTENCE TO 20 YEARS IN ‘HONOR KILLING’ CASE

December 31, 2018:

The Court of Cassation upheld a March Criminal Court ruling, sentencing a 27-year-old man to 20 years in prison after convicting him of murdering his younger sister for reasons related to family honour in Mafraq in July of 2016.
The court declared the defendant guilty of the premeditated murder of his 24-year-old sister by stabbing her multiple times on July 23 and handed him the death penalty.
However, the court decided to reduce the sentence to 20 years because the victim’s father and mother dropped charges against their son.
The defendant contested the Criminal Court’s ruling charging that he had “killed his sister in a moment of rage because she would constantly leave the house and [he] did not plot the murder”.
However, the Court of Cassation rejected his claims and ruled that the Criminal Court’s ruling was accurate and the defendant deserved the sentence he received.
