Vai logo!

Impossível ler essa notícia e não lembrar do conselho do Janer Cristaldo: visite a Europa antes que ela acabe.

German divorce court judge Christa Datz-Winter saw fit to reject an application for a speedy divorce by referring to a passage of the Koran.

In a letter to the wife's lawyer, Barbara Becker-Rojczyk, who had applied for such a speedy divorce to be granted to her client Najat L., the judge pointed out that the couple came from a Moroccan cultural background in which is not uncommon for husbands to beat their wives.

"The exercise of the right to castigate does not fulfill the hardship criteria as defined by the German Federal Law," she wrote. "It must be taken into account here, that both man and wife have Moroccan backgrounds."
