'Honour' killing abhorrent, says judge, as man convicted and son starts 18-year term
by Louise Hall
So called "honour killings" have no place in Australian society and must be seriously punished because women are not the chattels or possession of men, a NSW Supreme Court justice has said.
The comment came after a jury found Hazairin Iskandar guilty of brutally murdering his wife's lover in a Leichhardt street in February 2010.
Iskandar stabbed Mohd Shah Saemin, 43, with a knife while his son Andrew, then 19, bashed him with a hammer "like a piece of meat".
