Jonge vrouw van 19 kreeg doodstraf opgelegd voor 'moord' op haar verkrachter... Lees en teken ajb de petitie voor haar vrijlating

Mensen van sommige berichten wordt je letterlijk kotsmisselijk, zoals het volgende: Noura Hussein, een jonge Soedanese vrouw van 19, die tegen haar zin werd gedwongen te trouwen, werd door 'haar echtgenoot' verkracht terwijl ze werd vastgehouden door familieleden van de psychopaat die haar verkrachtte........

De volgende keer dat haar zogenaamde man probeerde haar weer te verkrachten, heeft ze hem gedood..... De rechter oordeelde dat dit een moord was en veroordeelde haar tot dood door verhanging......... Uit zelfverdediging tegen één van de vreselijkste martelingen iemand ombrengen en dan durft een rechter te zeggen dat dit moord is.......

Mensen, lees de volgende tekst en teken ajb de petitie van het Care2 Team voor haar vrijlating en geeft het door! Hoe meer mensen meedoen hoe beter, wellicht dat men dan eindelijk de meer dan belachelijke en kromme wetgeving op Soedan zal bijstellen!

Demand justice for Noura Hussein, who is sentenced to death for killing her rapist in self defence.


Content warning: this story contains descriptions of rape.

Noura Hussein, 19, was raped by the man she was forced to marry in Sudan. Three of his relatives pinned her down whilst her husband forced himself on her. The next time he tried to rape her, she fought back and killed him in self defence. Last week, she was sentenced to death by hanging for murder. Her lawyers have 7 days left to appeal.

Take action: sign the petition to demand justice for Noura.

Badr Eldin Salah, an activist from the Afrika Youth Movement who was in the court says, "Noura's lawyers say they plan to appeal against the decision, but we also need strong international support from organisations such as the African Union, the United Nations and the European Union to support her."

Marital rape and child marriage are not considered crimes in Sudan. But as Equality Now's Global Director Yasmeen Hassan says, "Criminalisation of Noura for defending herself from assault and, in particular a death sentence, would violate her rights under the Sudanese Constitution and international law."

Please sign now to show your support for Noura. If there is enough international outcry, we can show the Sudanese courts that they must revoke her death sentence and hopefully we can save her life.
Thank you,

Justice For Noura Hussein, The Girl Who Is Sentenced To Death For Killing Her Rapist.

Noura Hussein, 19, was told she would be hanged after a Sharia court convicted her of premeditated murder of her husband who she had been forced to marry.
A teenage bride has been sentenced to death for killing her husband who raped her as male relatives pinned her down.


Noura Hussein, 19, says her father made her marry the man - who was also her cousin - when she was 16, but she refused to accept the union and sought refuge with a relative for three years. She returned to her family home on the outskirts of the Sudanese capital Khartoum in April this year after her father said the marriage was cancelled. But she found that she had been duped and preparations for her wedding ceremony were under way.


Hussein said that she refused to have sex with her husband after the ceremony, but on the sixth day, he raped her as three of his male relatives held her down to restrain her. The following day, he attempted to rape her again and as she struggled to stop him, she stabbed him, killing him. A Sharia court, which follows Islamic religious law, found Hussein guilty of premeditated murder last month and on Thursday officially sentenced her to death by hanging. Her lawyers have 15 days to appeal.


"Under Sharia law, the husband's family can demand either monetary compensation or death. They chose death and now the death penalty has been handed down," said Badr Eldin Salah, an activist from the Afrika Youth Movement who was in the court.


"Noura's lawyers say they plan to appeal against the decision, but we also need strong international support from organisations such as the African Union, the United Nations and the European Union to support her."

Sudan is ranked 165 out of 188 countries on the UN's Gender Inequality Index, which measures how women fare compared to men when it comes to access to health, education, political participation and employment opportunities. UN Women says violence against women and girls is considered prevalent. 

The country has not signed the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women and has weak policies in place to protect them. Marital rape and child marriage, for example, are not considered crimes in the predominately Muslim African nation. Sudanese law allows for the marriage of a girl once she hits puberty. It also says a 10-year-old girl can be married by their guardian with the permission of a judge. One in three Sudanese women are married before the age of 18, says UN Women.

Campaign groups such as Equality Now say they are writing to Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir to plead for clemency, arguing that the judgement is against the Sudanese constitution.


"Noura is a victim, not a criminal, and should be treated as such. In many countries, victims like Noura would be provided services to ensure that they overcome the trauma of their experiences," said Equality Now's Global Director Yasmeen Hassan.


"Criminalisation of Noura for defending herself from assault and, in particular a death sentence, would violate her rights under the Sudanese Constitution and international law."

Please sign now to show your support for Noura. If enough people sign, we can show the Sudanese courts that they must revoke her death sentence and hopefully we can save her life.
