This is How Saudi Arabia Punished a Teenage Girl Who “Allowed” Herself to be Gang Raped

It’s always the victim’s fault. If the victim is a woman, that is.

Via The Info Post:

Saudi Arabia defended a controversial verdict sentencing a 19-year-old gang rape victim to 200 lashes and six months in jail.

The upholding of a decision to punish the victim triggered international outcry.

The woman’s lawyer, Abdul Rahman al-Lahem, reached out to the media. The court has since banned him from further defending the woman, confiscating his license and summoning him to a disciplinary hearing later this month.

The rape took place in 2006. The victim said it occurred as she tried to retrieve her picture from a male high school student she used to know.

While in a car with the student, two men got into the vehicle and drove them to a secluded area. She said she was raped there by seven men, three of whom also attacked her friend.
