The kanun, the customary law of the Albanians that was handed down orally, used to regulate land and inheritance disputes. Or certain penalties, for example in the case of theft, female adultery or murder. Only: Even today, the kanun is used for disputes over land, money or debts. Sometimes a bad word about a member of a family is enough – already the honor is violated. Here in Switzerland blood feuds are carried out again and again.

Around August 2019. An Albanian mother of four († 34) from Dietikon ZH paid with her life for separating from her husband.
