Refugee Who Raped 16-Year-Old Girl Acquitted Due to 'Different Cultural Norms'
The attorney contended boy had 'misunderstanding' of how the girl dressed
A Bangladeshi refugee, who raped a 16-year-old high-school girl in France, has been acquitted by the court due to “different cultural norms,” according to reports.
The refugee, who attended the same school as his victim in the French city of Saint-Lô, was also charged with sexually assaulting another young girl in 2015.
The attorney contended that the defendant possessed “different cultural norms,” which led to a "misunderstanding" of how the girl dressed, her behavior and looks.
Eventually, the judge gave him a suspended sentence of two years behind bars for the sexual assault, according to Voice of Europe, but acquitted him of the rape, allowing him to walk free from the court.
Citing French news website La Manche Libre, investigators highlighted to the 'male-dominant' in Bangladesh culture which views women as" relegated to the status of a sexual object” in the mainly Muslim country.
The 18-year-old refugee, whose identity still hasn't been revealed, was accused of kissing and groping the private parts of the schoolgirl but was cleared of charges after he claimed the girl had consented to it.
Despite the claims of consent, the girl had reportedly attempted suicide and spent a week in the hospital.
Just four month after the incident, the migrant was arrested again on rape charges.
Jihad Watch Director Robert Spencer, who was addressing the case, emphasized that the refugee’s “cultural norms” were very different and in the root of Islam - yet questioned why Western countries can’t impose theirs.
“Why can’t France enforce its own ‘cultural norms’? Why can’t any Western country?” he asked, referring to the survivor of a Muslim rape gang in the UK.
Spencer stated that the Quran “teaches that infidel women can be lawfully taken for sexual use,” before quoting a verse:
“O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful,” (33:59) he quoted, thereby implying that if women do not cover themselves accordingly with their outer garments, they may be abused, and that “such abuse would be justified.”
Some comparable cases in Britain, most notably the case of 17 Muslim men and one woman charged and convicted of raping over 100 underage white girls, the UK government’s senior legal adviser insisted judges were giving in to political correctness by giving lighter sentences.
The British trial involving the Muslim “grooming gangs" in September this year, a woman on camera testified that she was "passed around" at one year of age by 100 men.
Meanwhile, in Germany, the most significant reported case of an 18-year-old girl was raped outside a disco by seven of whom were Syrians.
Earlier this month, Police in Munich arrested five asylum seekers from Afganistan after a 15-year-old German girl claimed the men raped her.
Officers have apprehended five of the six-member group, all aged between 20 and 25-years-old, who preyed on the "socially challenged" girl after she was groomed by one of their gang, according to Bild.
