Italian Supreme Court Rejects Muslim Culture Defense to Beatings

The Italian Supreme Court upheld a sentence for aggravated abuse and assault against a Muslim father who "corrected" his twelve year old daughter with a broomstick.

Defense lawyers maintained that the father, who allegedly beat his daughter with a broom handle for "corrective" purposes after she could not properly recite the Koran, did so because of "cultural" reasons and should be given a lighter sentence accordingly.

The court said the beating would be unjustifiable whether from Italians or foreigners.
