Abstract


Last week marked the first anniversary of government introduced amendments to Article 340 of the Penal Code that scrapped penalty exemptions for killers in what are loosely termed “crimes of honour.” The amendments, which kept reductions for men, entitled women also to benefit from reduced penalties if they committed murder after discovering their husbands had committed adultery.
