Justice for Ashlee



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

In case you can't see the above video frame, click here:

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

WE ASK YOU to join us on Friday morning at 10am at the Supreme Court, 210 William Street, Melbourne. Maplink

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.

This is the most barbaric treatment of any human I have heard of in Australia in their own home who is not a criminal ....... let alone this heinous vile act being inflicted upon a young naïve Australian Christian? girl of 25 with 3 children under the age of 5.

The court have given him 8 years on the basis of a pleading of manslaughter because they have not found the evidence to convict him on murder.? How? More than 100 injuries and he didn't call 000 immediately?

So a stranger broke in to their car?.... and did this heinous act to a young wife with 3 muslim kids married to a muslim drug addict? What was their motivation? Or was this an honour killing? If so then they have the husband's motivation for a murder charge.

Appauled and so disgusted that the education of all non Muslim Australians is not mandatory in the curriculum alongside other minority teachings units of inquiry yearly and weekly at Australian school on Aborigines. Well if you want to know about Islam teach the Koran and honour killings etc and stop sugar coating everything so that all the kids grow up believing no harm can come to them. Most Muslims are law abiding citizens but not all so teach the differences so innocents can understand the worst case scenarios and go from there. This is beyond tragic what a sweet young girl what a waste and so sad that her chlldren never get to see her again.
