Wife in Tulay Goren 'honour killing' trial breaks decades of silence
by Helen Nugent
A father accused of murdering his 15-year-old daughter in an "honour" killing collapsed in the dock yesterday as his wife broke her ten-year silence to face him at the Old Bailey.
Mehmet Goren, 49, was taken ill just 45 minutes into Hanim Goren's testimony as his wife gave evidence against him. There were chaotic scenes as paramedics were called.
Mrs Goren waived her right to speak from behind a screen, choosing to describe in front of her husband and his brothers, Ali, 55, and Cuma, 42, the events leading up to her daughter's disappearance in January 1999.
