Two-hour rape and torture of honour killing girl murdered by her family
Last updated at 22:25pm on 19th July 2007
Horrific details have been revealed of the last hours of the young Kurdish woman murdered by her family for falling in love with the wrong man.
Banaz Mahmod, 20, was brutally raped and stamped on during a two-hour ordeal before being garotted.
One of her killers, the Old Bailey was told, was 30-year-old Mohamad Hama, who had been recruited by Banaz's father Mahmod Mahmod, 52, and his brother Ari, 51.
Both were found guilty of murder last month.
The shocking details of the killing came to light when Hama was secretly recorded talking to a friend in prison.
He admitted "slapping" and "f***ing" Banaz, who was subjected to degrading sex acts.
Hama and his friend were heard laughing as he described how she was killed in her family home in Mitcham, South London, with Ari Mahmod "supervising".
The murderers - two other suspects have fled to Iraq - had been told Banaz would be on her own.
Hama is recorded as saying: "Ari (the uncle) said there is no one there. There was someone there, Biza (her sister). The bastard lied to us."
He said of the murder: "I swear to God it took him more than two hours. Her soul and her life would not leave."
Banaz was garotted for five minutes, said Hama, but it took another half an hour for her to die.
Hama said: "The wire was thick and the soul would not just leave like that.
"We could not remove it. All in all it took five minutes (to strangle) her.
"I was kicking and stamping on her neck to get the soul out. I saw her stark naked, without wearing pants or underwear."
Banaz's body was packed into a suitcase and buried in a garden in Birmingham, where it was found three months later.
The trial of the two brothers heard that Banaz was killed because she had walked out of an unhappy arranged marriage - which she was forced into at just 17 - and fallen in love with Iranian Kurd Rahmat Suleimani, 28.
The pair had been secretly seeing each other, but her family were furious when they found out because Mr Suleimani was not "immediate family" or a strict Muslim.
Terrified, Banaz wrote to police naming people she said were planning to kill her.
Hama was on the list, the court heard. Two other men named by Banaz have fled the country.
Transcripts of the prison recording were read out at a pre- sentence hearing for Hama, of South Norwood, South London, who pleaded guilty to murdering Banaz at an earlier hearing.
Judge Brian Barker, the Common Serjeant of London, sat to assess the extent of Hama's involvement.
He and the Mahmod brothers are due to be sentenced tomorrow.
Victor Temple QC, prosecuting, told the court that Hama, who sat impassively in the dock, took a "leading part" in raping and killing Banaz in January last year then dumping her body.
He was said to have been recorded expressing concern because his fingerprints and DNA were on her body.
He was also concerned that a leaking pipe at the house where she was buried was sending water through the suitcase, possibly uncovering it.
During another taped conversation, Hama joked about Banaz's hair and elbow sticking out of the suitcase and how a police patrol drove past while he was helping to drag it to a car.
He said: "The road was crowded. The police came past. People were passing by - and we were dragging the bag.
"I almost ran away. Mr Ari (was dragging it) and we were around by each side of him.
"You know what it was, sticking out, her elbow, her hair was falling out so much. That was a stupid thing, a silly thing."
Defence barrister Malcolm Swift QC claimed Hama became involved only after Banaz's body had been put in the suitcase.
He told the court there was no direct evidence that Hama was present at the time of the murder - he took part in the planning but "had realised the error of becoming directly involved in the killing".
Hama's car was outside his home throughout the morning of the killing and his mobile phone could not be linked to the murder scene.
Mr Swift said Hama got his information on the killing from others, including Ari Mahmod.
What a miserable rat bastard. Does he really believe that he will be rewarded with 72 virgins?
These are the animals that “politically-correct” Liberals defend. Hour by hour, day by day, it gets worse. Meanwhile, the American people are clueless. Just remember the photos of Hillary sucking up to Arafat and his wife and then we have Hussein Obama. Need I say more?
You'd think the rights of the other prisoners would be something they'd be concerned with. No prisoner wants to be trapped in a hole in the wall with a puke like this one.
I would happily shoot both of those rabid dogs in the head, wash my hands, and eat lunch.
If this is how they treat their own family members, how can infidels like you or me expect to be treated?
Why do civilized nations even allow barbarians like these into their countries?
In London, on the 30th anniversary of the Islamic Development Bank:
"I am certain that with the support of the Islamic Development Bank
my charities will be able to increase their efforts to address the challenges
we face in Britain's cities and help those younger British Muslims
who feel they have little or no stake in society to play a fuller part
in the country's affairs by promoting community and entrepreneurial development."

To 800 Islamic scholars and terrorists at Cairo's Al-Azhar University
"The recent ghastly strife and anger over the Danish cartoons
shows the danger that comes of our failure to listen and to respect what is precious
and sacred to others. In my view, the true mark of a civilised society
is the respect it pays to minorities and to strangers."
[Mar. 21, 2006, Charles, The Islamic Prince of Wales]
Such a culture that would allow and condone this, cannot be allowed to grow among any civilized society. Those who would condone and participate in such a life style should be hunted to the four corners of the earth, like the Nazis, and brought to justice or themselves exterminated.
May God have pity, and mercy on that young girls soul (and all others who suffer under such abject terror and tyranny), my He rest her soul.
Gee ,do ya think fat Rosie was right about these stone age monkeys loving their children too?
No, it would have been "shocking" if the killers were Christians or Jews or Hindus or Buddhists.
“we women are NOTHING in islam”
Quote from an afghan student who is as a former muslim in recovery.
Where are all of the vocal women’s groups? Why have I not heard a word from them about this atrocity? Where are they? Are they just in reserve to attack America and it’s institutions? If they don’t commandeer the microphones now, why should they be given microphones later? Clearly, these murderers deserve the death penalty, and the sooner the better. But, of course, they will live on in prison at citizens’ expense, even though those citizens want them dead.
Take a good look all you Freepers; this is the true face of most of Islam.
Christianity, Judaism, or virtually any other faith makes us accountable for our actions regardless of who our victims are. Religion of Peace, my ass.
