Girl beaten for being too westernized

The brother (20) and father (40) of an 18-year-old girl were arrested for domestic abuse and grievous bodily harm. The girl dreamt of running a hair salon, and she wanted to have fun, to go out with her Italian boyfriend and friends. But to her Muslim Turkish family, this was unacceptable. The two men threatened and beat the girl to prevent her from going out with her Italian boyfriend. The young woman escaped to a safe house with the help of a friend, where, when speaking with the mayor of the village, she expressed her desire to not return to her family, fearing further violence. According to police investigations, it seems that domestic violence was not new to this family.
