Homicide cops probing case of Hamilton woman reported missing 9 years later
Hamilton homicide detectives are investigating the disappearance of a woman they say was reported missing nearly nine years after she vanished.
Nuseiba Hasan was 26 when she was last seen by her family in the fall of 2006. She wasn’t reported missing until early last year, police say.
Investigators believe foul play was involved.
Police say they will be searching a property at 1207 Concession 8 West, Flamborough that was previously owned by the Hasan family.
They are asking anyone who knew Hasan to contact Det. Ben Adams at 905-546-3836 or Crime Stoppers.
She is described as of Jordanian descent, about 5-foot-4 with a slim build, brown eyes and black hair.
Muslims commit 91 percent of honor killings worldwide. 84 percent of honor killings in the United States were done by Muslims. A manual of Islamic law certified as a reliable guide to Sunni orthodoxy by Al-Azhar University, the most respected authority in Sunni Islam, says that ‘retaliation is obligatory against anyone who kills a human being purely intentionally and without right.’
However, ‘not subject to retaliation’ is ‘a father or mother (or their fathers or mothers) for killing their offspring, or offspring’s offspring.’ (‘Umdat al-Salik o1.1-2). In other words, someone who kills his child incurs no legal penalty under Islamic law.”
In other words, Islamic law sets no penalty for a parent who kills his child. Also, the legal codes of Jordan, Syria, and other Muslim countries have substantially reduced penalties for honor murders as compared to other murders, and Islamic clerics have resisted efforts to stiffen penalties for honor killings.
