the judiciary's sentencing policy is ridiculous

4 year prison term for a man convicted of molesting a female student at Muta University. Six years and 8 months for a man having consensual sex with a female under 18.

BUT if you murder a woman in the name of so called 'honour' you get a lesser sentence. As my fellow blogger J has written, this ridiculous situation should be stopped. It is unbelievable that judges hand down the above sentences but will not do the same for premeditated murder. I think the first change in the law should be that the victim's families should not be allowed to drop charges as the offender is within the same family! T
