WATCH A CURRENT AFFAIR ON CHANNEL 9 TONIGHT (18 July)
JOIN US FRIDAY 20 JULY 10AM AT THE VICTORIAN SUPREME COURT
You may have heard the horrific story of Ashlee Brown, a 25 year old Victorian mother of three, who was killed in November 2016 by her husband Mohammad Naddaf. The gruesome act appears to be yet another hushed-over ‘honour’ killing. Watch the heart-breaking story told by Ashlee’s mother

This Friday morning at 10am, Ashlee’s mother Shiobann, supported by friends and fellow ALA members Avi Yemini and Debbie Robinson, will stand in protest outside the Supreme Court in Melbourne, where Mohammad’s sentencing is scheduled for 10:30am. However, there never was a proper trial. Mohammad was first charged with killing his wife, but then made a deal to plead guilty to a single count of manslaughter by criminal negligence instead.
We believe this deal is not justice. There must be a clear and loud message to those who think women are property and domestic violence, or killing in the name of ‘honour’ can be swept under the multicultural carpet.
Channel Nine will air a special segment about the case tonight (Wednesday 18 July) in their ‘A Current Affair’ program starting at 7:00pm. If you miss it today, you may be able to catch a recording at https://www.9now.com.au/a-current-affair/2018/extras
WE ASK YOU to join us on Friday morning at 10am at the Supreme Court, 210 William Street, Melbourne. Maplink https://goo.gl/maps/7HySSTK9JVP2
Ashlee’s mother will bring purple pin ribbons for all and we will have a number of placards available. If you can print A3 format, click here to download the file in pdf format.
This will be the starting point for a campaign to reform Victoria’s judiciary that will take us to the state election and beyond.
Please make the effort. Come to the court house and stand for Justice for Ashlee.
