Teen bride to hang for killing hubby who raped her

Teen bride to hang for killing hubby who raped her

CNN reports marital rape is legal in Sudan, and the legal age of marriage is 10.

Sodfa Daaji tweeted "The court is full".

Sudanese women have been canvassing after they tagged the death sentence of a teenager, Noura Hussein for killing her husband as unfair. Al-Imam volunteered to represent the teen after her original lawyer took themselves off the case. Over 140,000 people have also signed a petition to help her, which you can sign here. After less than a week with him, she says, his brother and two others held her down while he raped her, and the next day when he tried it again, she stabbed him and fled to her parents, who brought her to the cops.

Hussein was convicted of murder on April 29, 2018, and was today sentenced to death.

"On 2 May 2017, the three men held Noura Hussein down while Abdulrahman raped her", Amnesty International said. In April of past year, her family convinced her to return to their home in the outskirts of Khartoum, Sudan's capital.

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 has been raped by her husband".

Supporters of Hussein flocked to the Criminal Court in Omdurman, Sudan's second-largest city, in protest during the trial. A team of Sudanese activists are organising a protest at the US Capitol in Washington on Saturday. But Hussein's case was different.

Hussein's case is significant, Afrika Youth Movement wrote, "Not only because she is one of the many women in a similar situation - subjected to patriarchal male violence, blamed and abandoned by community, at the mercy of religious laws, without recourse to justice. She stood for her rights". One in three Sudanese women are married before the age of 18, says UN Women. "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. The family of the victim chooses the punishment for the murderer, demanding either pardon, or monetary compensation, or the death penalty.
