Not only in Saudi Arabia

Nine people who pleaded guilty to raping a 10-year-old girl were given suspended sentences or probation, national media said Monday in reports that prompted outrage and a review of sexual assault cases in remote Aboriginal communities. Judges can suck everywhere. Some said that the 10 year old girl “agreed” to this, but that’s no excuse to molest a child.

The case with those who were minor age might be less clear, but there were two older age (18 and 26), and when an adult has sex with a girl under 13 is always considered rape, no matter if the girl “agreed” and there was zero violence. Even in the case of 13-16 y.o. girls it is not possible to give their consent. In that case it’s considered a “semi-rape”. I just wonder if it would have been different if the girl wasn’t an aboriginal…

Sure, but at least in some places (most of Europe, for example) they have to stick to the law. So in this case it would have been impossible to not consider it rape (by the two adults and probably a few others).
