OTTAWA -- The uncle of a man who murdered his sister and her fiance in an honour killing got two years probation Wednesday for threatening to "spill" his daughter's blood because she defied him.
Ahmad Sadiqi, 52, pleaded guilty to uttering threats against his 23-year-old daughter and criminally harassing her and his wife.
The March 2011 dispute was related to his daughter's desire for more independence, including driving their car.
"The subject matter is very chilling and very upsetting - it is a threat to spill his daughter's blood when she is defying him," Judge Diane Lahaie said.
The Crown was "rightfully concerned" that Sadiqi is the uncle of Hasibullah Sadiqi, Lahaie said.
Hasibullah was sentenced to life behind bars for shooting his sister, Khatera, and Feroz Mangal in their parked car six years ago because they brought dishonour on the family.
Ahmad Sadiqi's wife and daughter called police fearing "honour-based violence," the Crown said.
But they're no longer afraid and have reunited with Sadiqi, who returned home in April. He's "markedly" remorseful," has been in family violence counselling with an imam and has taken an "aggression prevention" course.
Lahaie "commended" him on the steps he's taken.
She was "troubled," however, by letters from the two women saying they had learned from their mistakes.
"They have certainly done nothing wrong," Lahaie said.
