Yemini women hating bastards! (warning, very graphic details about the rape of child bride)
Edited on Sat Apr-10-10 01:39 PM by Liberal_in_LA
I'm glad this story is getting worldwide attention. The 'husband' is in custody. I hope he gets some of that Sharia justice
--------------------------------------------------


According to police notes from the interrogation of the husband, he was upset because he could not consummate their relationship and felt under pressure to prove his manhood.

Assi's mother said she also tried to persuade her daughter to have sex with her husband so as not to shame the family.

Al-Hikmi took his young bride to a nearby medical clinic, asking a doctor there to administer her tranquilizers so she would not resist his advances. The clinic said it refused.

Al-Hikmi then obtained performance enhancing pills, according to the police interrogation, and that night completed the act while she screamed.

The next day, he returned to the same medical clinic carrying Assi because she could not walk.

"I told him not to go near her for at least ten days," said Dr. Fathiya Haidar. She said Assi's vaginal canal was ripped.

A forensic report obtained by the AP showed that Assi's injuries were much more extensive, including extensive tearing around the vagina and rectum, suggesting that there might have been additional intercourse after the clinic visit.

"She whispered in my ear that he had tied her up and had sex with her violently," she said. "I said to her husband, what have you done, you criminal?"



and damn the mother for not protecting her daughter

2. Pressure needs to be put on the Yemen government
Edited on Sat Apr-10-10 02:32 PM by DesertRat
to stop this common practice . :mad:

"The practice of marrying young girls is widespread in Yemen where a quarter of all females marry before the age of 15, according to a 2009 report by the country's Ministry of Social Affairs. Traditional families prefer young brides because they are seen as more obedient and are expected to have more children.

Legislation to ban child brides has been stalled by opposition from religious leaders. There has been no government comment over the case."

3. The Sharia punishment would depend on whether they could prove intent.
The sex, under Sharia law, was legal. The death wasn't.

If the murder was unintentional (he raped her, but didn't mean to kill her), the punishment would be the payment of blood money to her family. Her "value" would be calculated, and he would be forced to repay them for their lost daughter.

If the murder was intentional, the punishment is death. Her father, of course, will have the option of forgiving the murder, if the "husband" agrees to pay the blood money anyway.

In other words, don't look to Sharia law for justice. There isn't any to be found for her there.

4. The mothers have no power there.

When women there try to stand up against men they suffer for it. Don't look to sharia law for justice towards women.
