In Ancona, the capital of the Central Italian Marche Region on the Adriatic sea, is the local court of appeal concluded that a young Peruvian woman can't be raped.
The justification for this reads as if it was the nasty talk of a vermufften dive. The judges do not judge in it, the young woman would be acceptable as a sacrifice, because you "look too masculine" and "unattractive". What a bad man joke sounds disturbed many Italians. Adding to this disorientation is the fact that the judges ' panel made up of three women.
drugs and alcohol in the blood
The story of the alleged rape is three years. The woman, 22 years old, had attended lessons in an evening school, then you went with two peers, compatriots from the class for a beer. There are two, three, four Beers were. One of the men is said to have then passed in a city Park sexually to her while the other stood guard. The next day the young woman went with her mother to a hospital. When the Tests came out that she had not only taken a lot of alcohol, but also drugs. She said she had known nothing of the men had you mixed the stuff into the drink.
In the first instance, the alleged rapist was sentenced to five, the second man to three years in prison. They went in appeal, and the three said appellate judge lifted inside the judgment with the reference to the supposedly unattractive appearance of the young woman. So it went to the court of cassation, Italy's highest court. The quashed the acquittal and scheduled a new trial to be held in the Umbrian Perugia. A course of the process, as it gives him a thousand-fold, offences just after Sex.
"The words of the court are like a stone blow on the path of emancipation."Claudia Mazzucchelli, the trade Union Confederation UIL
on the occasion published of the court of cassation for the first time that the justification for the judge inside letter from the second instance. The victim is described as a "cunning Peruvian," which have thought up the story, but only in front of their mother as a party-goer and a drinker.
in Addition, it is said, did not like the alleged rapist, the woman "once" – and, according to the judges, there is a proof: "In his phone he has her number stored under the name "Viking girl" and so to her anything other than feminine appearance." And further: "The photo accompanying documents this process, seems to confirm that."
Minister assigns inspection in the court of appeal
A line of argument, how one listens to you maybe once more at the table. After the publication of the justification came before the court of appeal of Ancona, to a flash mob of protesting civil rights activists and trade unionists, on their banners and posters, "Shame on you!" and "Tremble, tremble, the witches return", an old feminist battle slogan.
"The words of the court," said Claudia Mazzucchelli from the trade Union Confederation UIL, "are like a stone blow on the path of emancipation". We are back at the point where the appearance of the woman plays a Central role in the assessment of such cases. "This we cannot allow."
Also in the Italian Ministry of justice, one is dumbfounded. The Minister ordered an inspection in the court of appeal of Ancona. The young woman now lives back in Peru. (Tages-Anzeiger)
