Jihad Watch : The rapist’s name
is Juusuf Muhamed Abbud. No doubt a large part of the reason why he was
not found guilty of aggravated rape was because to find him guilty
would have been “Islamophobic.”
“Ruling in child sexual abuse case goes against public sense of justice,” Helsinki Times, November 24, 2017:
Finns have widely expressed their outrage and bafflement
with a recent ruling in a case against a 23-year-old man who had
intercourse with a ten-year-old girl. The Turku Court of Appeal ruled last week that the defendant was
guilty of aggravated child sexual abuse but not of aggravated rape and
sentenced him to three years in prison, thus upholding a ruling issued
in March by the District Court of Pirkanmaa.
The defendant was acquitted of the charge of aggravated rape on
grounds that the defence was unable to substantiate its claim that the
victim had been unable to defend herself and express her lack of consent
because she was in a state of fear and helplessness at the time of the
act, according to Helsingin Sanomat.
Jussi Tapani, a professor of criminal law at the University of Turku,
and Matti Tolvanen, a professor of criminal law at the University of
Eastern Finland, estimate in an interview with the newspaper that the
case could ultimately warrant the attention of the Supreme Court of
Finland. Both of them indicated that the criminal code fails to unambiguously
define the grounds for determining that the victim was in a state of
fear or other state of helplessness.
“The Supreme Court should set a precedent on whether or not a
ten-year-old can be ruled to be able to express their will in
circumstances such as these. I’m personally of the opinion that a
ten-year-old would be unable to understand the matter and thereby defend
themselves against an adult,” comments Tolvanen.
Tapani also estimates that the sentence handed to the offender would
have been one to two years longer if he had also been found guilty of
