Saudi Rape Victim Apparently Admitted To "Affair"

Remember the Saudi woman who was sentenced to 200 lashes and six months in jail for, well, being gang raped? She has confessed to an affair according to the Saudi justice minister.

He said that the victim

confessed to doing what God has forbidden…The charged girl is a married woman who confessed to having an affair with the man she was caught with.”

The Saudi justice minister also

“expressed his regret about the media reports over the role of the women in this case which put out false information and wrongly defend her.”

Originally the reports said that the rape victim was given the 200 lashes punishment because she was caught riding in a car with a man to whom she was not related.

Either way, they are making it sound like she was “asking for it”. Shocking. Truly shocking.
