Staatsanwaltschaft Lüneburg: Mordanklage gegen einen Eziden – Konversion zum Christentum

Die Staatsanwaltschaft Lüneburg hat gegen einen 31-jährigen Mann Anklage wegen Mordes an seiner Ehefrau (32 Jahre) und deren Freundin (33 Jahre) beim Schwurgericht des LG Lüneburg erhoben. Dem Angeschuldigten wird vorgeworfen, die Freundin seiner Ehefrau am 04.01.2015 aus niedrigen Beweggründen und heimtückisch durch mehrere Stiche mit einem Küchenmesser getötet zu haben. Die Anklage geht davon aus, dass der Angeschuldigte die Frau zu sich nach Hause eingeladen hatte, um sie zu töten. Der Grund dafür dürfte gewesen sein, dass seine Ehefrau sich von ihm trennen und zum christlichen Glauben übertreten wollte, wofür er die Freundin seiner Ehefrau mitverantwortlich machte. Der Angeschuldigte dürfte gehofft haben, dass seine Frau nach der Tötung der Freundin aus Angst bei ihm bleiben würde. Den Rest des Beitrags lesen »

EGMR: Forthcoming hearing on 3 December 2014 at 9.15 a.m.: Grand Chamber hearing in the case F.G. v. Sweden (application no. 43611/11)

The applicant, F.G., is an Iranian national who was born in 1962 and is currently in Sweden. He arrived in Sweden in November 2009 claiming asylum. In his initial request for asylum he submitted that he had been politically active against the Iranian regime. He also mentioned that he had converted to Christianity after coming to Sweden but didn’t wish to rely on it as an asylum ground, either before the Migration Board or, on appeal, before the Migration Court, since he considered it a personal matter. Having been refused asylum on political grounds, F.G. requested a stay on his deportation order, relying on his conversion to Christianity as a new circumstance to be taken into consideration. His request was refused by the authorities in a decision which was eventually upheld in November 2011, on the ground that his conversion was not a “new circumstance” which could justify a reexamination of the proceedings.
