Justice from Paradise

| 2 Comments
Four men who had sex with a twelve year old girl after breaking into her home in January have been cleared of rape. A judge found the girl from Kurendhoo, Lhaviyani atoll, had consented to have sex with the men after they smashed her bedroom window with an axe.

The judge sentenced the four men to eight months exile from Kurendhoo for sex outside marriage. The sentence apparently contradicts a government commitment in May that child sex offenders would be imprisoned rather than banished.

Why is the judge's name NOT found in the news report?

may be it doesn't make a difference..i would have preferred to know the defense lawyers name.
