Student accuses four of rape
Three persons including a haris (building janitor) were charged with raping a female student in Qairawan. The girl said she befriended a person online, who asked her to come over to his house. She said she was raped there, then three hours later, he called another man to give her a ride. But this man took her to his flat in Riggae, then called a third man, who both raped her. Then a fourth man, the haris, was called, who raped her too. Police are investigating. In a separate case, a camera installed in an elevator documented a man molesting a woman inside. The girl went to the police station and told them the man touched her body. She screamed, so passersby caught him.
The criminal court postponed the case of a child’s murder in which her parents are suspects. The court refused to release them, while the prosecution demanded the death penalty. The crime took place in Salmiya a few months ago when the parents beat their 5-year-old daughter to death. The parents then dumped her body in a freezer.
A citizen told Nugra police that a real estate company sold her a piece of land in the UK, and she paid 50 percent of its value (KD 6,000), but the company did not give her the title deed. Separately, a Syrian was charged with forgery for letting his four children leave the country illegally. He let them travel under his old name, although they are banned from doing so, because the father has several violations he must pay for before he or any of the children can leave. The departure was through the Abdaly border.
A citizen told Jabriya police that his daughter was injured at school and submitted a medical report stating her injuries. He did not accuse anyone. Meanwhile, a citizen told Qairawan police his two daughters were injured while at the nursery. He submitted a medical report stating one girl had a dislocated elbow, while the other had a bruise under the eye. Investigations are underway.
