Rape victim pardoned
December 17, 2007
Sounds back to front doesn’t it?
The 19 year old Saudi rape victim sentenced to lashes and jail time for being alone in a car with a male who was not a relative when the rapists discovered her, and then had her reputation disparaged by the justice ministry to justify the court’s decision, has been pardoned by the Saudi King.
Thank goodness for small small mercies. I wonder if the poor child will ever be able to have anything approaching a normal life after all of this horror.
