Ottawa: Mother, son convicted of threatening woman, boyfriend with honour killing

OTTAWA — A mother and son, both Pakistani immigrants, were found guilty of several criminal charges Wednesday for harassing and threatening the daughter of the family after she “dishonoured” them for courting a “white guy.”

Both had threatened to kill the daughter and her non-Muslim boyfriend whom she had met while working with him at a McDonald’s restaurant.

Ontario Superior Court Judge Monique Metivier found the mother, Iqbal Bibi, guilty on two counts of uttering threats and one charge of intimidation, and her son, Khawar Saeed, guilty of one count each of criminal harassment, uttering threats, and intimidation.

They will be sentenced April 30.
