Court remands parents for 'honour' killing
The Swedish Supreme Court has ruled to remand the parents of man convicted of a so-called "honour" killing in Högsby, southern Sweden in 2005, the first time it has issued a remand ruling since the 1980s.
The court's five justices ruled to proceed behind closed doors, shortly after commencing the hearing against the couple who are suspected of having murdered 20-year-old Abba Rezai in 2005.
The case has been described by lower courts as an "honour" killing as Rezai was in a relationship with the couple's 16-year-old daughter at the time.
