World Defends Sudanese Rape Victim Condemned to Death

________________________

An online campaign is gaining momentum to defend a 19-year-old Sudanese woman sentenced to death for murdering her husband, who she says raped her after she was forced to marry him. The story of Noura Hussein received international attention when the details of her case circulated on social media and via an online petition on Change.org. In 2016, Hussein attempted to escape her arranged marriage, but her in-laws forcibly restrained her as her husband raped her to consummate their vows. Sarah el-Hasan, a rights activist supporting Hussein’s case, told al-Jazeera:

She wouldn’t have sex with the man; he recruited some of his cousins and brought them home where they held her down while her husband raped her.

Her lawyer Ahmed Sebair said:

The following night, when her husband tried to rape her again, Hussein stabbed him with a knife and killed him.

On Thursday, Hussein’s supporters stood behind her in the Omdurman courtroom as the judge condemned her to death by hanging after her husband’s family refused financial compensation for the killing, demanding instead that she face execution. Seif Magango, of Amnesty International said:

The death penalty is the ultimate cruel, inhuman, and degrading punishment, and to apply it to a rape victim only highlights the failure of the Sudanese authorities to acknowledge the violence she endured. Marital rape… despite being a taboo… is still a common occurrence in Sudanese society.

Nahid Gabralla is the director of NGO SEEMA, which assists gender-based violence victims and survivors. Gabralla said:

In my work, I’ve seen other cases like this. The suffering of Sudanese women happens all the time. The case of Noura is different. She stood for her rights.

Magango said:

This girl is a victim. She was married off at the tender age of 16 against her will and she stood up against that and refused to be forced into marriage. The death that took place was an act of self-defence and it’s a travesty of justice that she is at risk of being murdered, being killed by the state, only for defending herself and that is something that needs to be corrected and this death penalty, this death sentence, must be revoked.

Hussein’s lawyers have just under two weeks to appeal the conviction.

1 October 2017. Texas Bentley Got Married in Donetsk! Сотворий Господи на многая лета!

******

________________________

Russell Bentley had to scramble his bride’s face because he knows what depths the US-backed Uniate fascist nationalists will go to. Obama backed and enabled the Ukrop nationalists, as does Trump today. Ukrops are vicious and spiteful; they attack the families of those that they label “terrorists”. They kidnap and torture those whom they think are relatives of their foes. The Uniate fascist nationalists repeatedly raped a woman’s underaged daughter… to attempt to terrorise her relatives. It’s why “separatists” wear masks. The nationalists torture and kill people merely for being relatives of Orthodox Donbass patriots. Welcome to “Europe” and “Western values”. Indeed, Poroshenko sent his “volunteers” (nationalist terrorists) with orders to use sexual violence on Donbass women. One such instance was when the American-backed aggressors raped a 6-year-old girl to death. She was a “Moskal”… so, she had to die.

However… most of those attending Galician Uniate parishes don’t back such nasty and evil methods. In fact, Galicia has the highest rate of draft evasion! American-backed armed mobs seized many of the “Uniate” churches… it wasn’t necessarily because the people wanted to be Uniate. So, please, have a care… the Uniate nationalists are soulless thugs… many of those attending Uniate parishes do so because it’s the only church in town and armed terrorists stole the building and put it under the Pope of Rome. Also, most of the professing Uniates aren’t nationalist terrorists. Don’t hate all Galician Uniates for the actions of a loud and violent minority.

8 March 2017. It’s Our Day! International Women’s Day… URA!

03.12 International Women's Day. 01e

____________________________________

Today is a special day, International Women’s Day. One of the few countries not to observe it is the USA… especially, the “conservative” troglodytes hate it. In like manner, to curry favour with the toddler Anglos, the Uniate junta in the Ukraine cancelled the holiday. That shows you how retrograde and subservient the Uniates are… whatever their Western puppeteers want, they deliver, in spades, no matter what the cost to the people, no matter what the people want. Don’t forget… this is a RED holiday… dedicated to the equality of women, justice for all in the workplace, and the recognition of the vital role that women play in life and in society.

Don’t let the rightwing filth rob you of your rightful holiday…
