A judicial system that has no regard for the value of women as persons is a judicial system that is at war with women. Like Sharia Law. As reported in the 10 December edition of the Clarion Project:
A woman who reported a rape and the two journalists who covered the story were found guilty of defamation and insulting state institutions in Somalia and were sentenced to jail by a court.
The case represents the second time this year that a Somali court has sentenced a woman who has spoken out after being raped and the journalist who reported it.
A woman who reported a rape and two journalists who publicized it were found guilty of insulting state institutions and defamation.
