15-Year Old Alleged Rape Victim In Maldives Sentenced To Flogging For Premarital Sex

The premarital sex was a separate incident, and the girl also received an eight month house arrest sentence.

During a police probe into allegations that the girl had been raped by her stepfather, investigators uncovered evidence that she had had consensual sex with another man.

“Though she has been sentenced she will be lashed once she turns 18,” the court official, who asked not to be named, told AFP. “But the sentence will be enforced immediately if she wants it to be carried out now.”
