Tunisian Woman Raped by Police Faces Six Months in Prison for “Indecent Exposure”

Islamic Spring…
A Tunisian woman who was allegedly raped by police faces up to six months in prison for indecent exposure.

Thousands of Tunisians have protested in the capital, Tunis, in August against moves by the Islamist-led government which they fear will reduce women’s rights. (BBC)

The Tunisian interior ministry says that before the alleged rape took place, the woman and her fiance were found in an “immoral position”… So they raped her.
Bikyamasr reported:

Tunisian authorities must drop indecency charges against a woman who was summoned to court on Wednesday after she had complained that police officers raped her earlier this month, Amnesty International said.

The woman and her fiancé, who prefer to remain anonymous, could be imprisoned for up to six months for “intentional indecent behavior” stemming from claims – by the very same police officers charged with raping her – that they were found in an “immoral position” in public in the capital Tunis.

The couple deny the charges and their court hearing is due to resume on October 2.

“At best, charging the victim of a rape by police officers instead of protecting her from intimidation and stigma highlights the deep flaws on Tunisian law and criminal justice system. At worst, it is an insidious attempt to discredit a rape victim and protect those she accused of raping her,” said Hassiba Hadj Sahraoui, Deputy Middle East and North Africa Program Director at Amnesty International.

“Rape by security forces – often used as a tool of repression – is a form of torture, and must be promptly and fully investigated and, if there is sufficient admissible evidence, prosecuted.”

    This isn’t a flaw in Tunisian “law” – this is a FEATURE of islamic jurisprudence and common throughout the muslim world.

    seriously, blame Obama..

    Tunisians See Washington as Too Cozy with Islamists

    [“People here are against the United States helping Ennahda,” a
    journalist told Totten. “All Americans who come here are against
    the Islamists, but the American government is supporting them. I
    wish we had a good, modern, respectful Islamic party. I’m a Muslim
    and I’m proud of it, but I’m not proud of this party.”

    The government is seen as far too cozy with radical Salafists,
    looking the other way as the radicals stake a claim to the new
    society. Ennahda members joined the Salafists in a recent rally
    calling for Sharia law in Tunisia.]

    Media demonize Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood

    [“I consider the Brotherhood to be a threat to Egypt,” said one of the eight, prize winning novelist Gamal el-Ghetani. “We are living a moment that may be similar to (Adolf) Hitler’s rise to power.”]

    Egypt: Barack Obama the true leader of the Muslim Brotherhood

    [Reasoning with hindsight every move made by the U.S. in recent months is in this sense. And in hindsight even in other states “victims” of so-called “Arab spring” the situation is the same. In all cases Islamism Salafi has snatched the liberal revolution transforming it into an Islamic revolution very similar to that of Iran. Whether this is an actual plan “hatched” by Barack Obama has everything to prove, but if you look at the facts there is little to be happy.]

    Get ready, ladies! You think there’s a war on women now? (There isn’t). Just wait until Sharia law is a way of life in the USA. You’ll be longing for the good old days when you had to shell out a whopping $6 at Walmart for birth control.

  • Joe Blow

    She may be lucky, as they typically stone women to death when they have been raped. It was their fault in their ignorant minds.

    Remember this next time you say that organizations like Amnesty International never care about abuses of human rights by Islamic governments.

    Such an evil perverse cult.

    Typical Muslims DO NOT respect women of any race or religion even if they are MUSLIM!

  • owl

    Obama and his liberal Democrats, not only wage war on women. They support women slavery.

    There is not any other way around it. When you try to bind women as a group to government with paid birth control, you ultimately will control them.

    When you are so busy bowing and apologizing to men who put their women in tent clothing without ANY rights, I call that aiding and abetting women slavery. These same men under the excuse of some HORRIBLE religion, blame the victim.

    Blaming someone else sound like anyone we know?

    These same men have the power under some HORRIBLE excuse of a religious law to kill their own daughters.

    HORRIBLE excuses called religion to enslave women. Obama bows. Obama apologizes. Obama supports women slavery.

    What is the difference between this women slavery and black slavery? It is obscene.

    Do you ever hear the Democrats ranting against it? Bush did more than all of them put together. He tried.

  • Every day we’re bombarded with horrific and barbaric news items about islam. The world burns, and Obama literally doesn’t give a sh*t and seems to support it all. Frightening.

    You have to watch this video… it’s scary. Obama is a Cult of Personality with the media in his back pocket… also, please share it…. email it, tweet it, facebook it.

    Still will wanna get your guys in office, ladies?

    Seriously, there are no words to express the frustration these women invoke. They must be suffering from battered jihad syndrome or something.

  • bobdog

    I’m sure the claims will be given immediate attention by Tunisian authorities. You can expect a press conference announcing a serious investigation of the lady’s accusation in exactly…never.

    She’ll be lucky to get out of prison alive.

    In Islam, it’s all about dominance and who gets to do what to whom as a DISPLAY of that dominance.

    Men are to their families (wives and offspring)
    as
    tribal leaders are to the tribes and clans they govern
    as
    clerics and government officials are to those who dwell within their borders
    as
    the Caliph is to the Ummah
    as
    Allah is to all mankind.

    = = = =

    And, PS– that’s the kind of power-and-authority that The Lib-Progs find IRRESISTIBLE. They want, they crave, they neeeed to have “The Power of God” over the rest of us. They will struggle and suffer for that power with the same desperation that a drowning man feels to get a lungful of air.

    Anyone who can, please apply NOW to be a poll-watcher.

    The Tunisians are demonstrating against police brutality. That’s how the Arab Spring started in Egypt. If these countries keep throwing out governments that fail to control the police, they may eventually wind up with something that works. I won’t hold my breath, and I wish the US had been more helpful.

  • SM-WI

    Where’s Sandra Fluke & NOW to stand up for these women? Instead, they fabricate and distort nonsense about the “war on women” here in US and turn a blind eye where the realy war on women is extremen and blatant! Hypocrites!

    Kinda late for that, ain’t it?

  • Kathteach

    Horrible savages. Yes.

    They would kill you and your family in a New York minute folks. Never forget.

    Let’s roll – and that means No More Obama (ignore debates and media – just get friends, neighbors, relatives to the polls).

    BTW – if you have a relative that died since 2008, it might be worth your while to make sure their names are stricken from the polls. It’s worth your time and effort to do so.
