A Turkish woman living in Bern will spend three years and six moths behind bars for encouraging the family of her daughter-in-law to carry out an “honor” crime against her.
The 66-year-old woman pressured the woman’s father and brothers into revenge for what she alleged was the woman’s “risqué lifestyle”, a criminal court was told.
The victim was never harmed but she pressed charges three years ago.
The court said the defendant knew through her actions that her daughter-in-law risked death.
