KUWAIT: RAPIST POLICEMAN SENTENCED TO DEATH FOR RAPING FILIPINA
June 5, 2014: The Criminal Court has sentenced a lance corporal in the General Traffic Department to death by hanging for kidnapping a Filipino woman, raping her and attempting to murder her, reports Al-Rai daily.
The case papers show the accused stopped a taxi in which there were two female passengers. He then asked them for their IDs and since one of them did not hold a valid residence permit, he told her to get into the police car.
He then took her to an open ground and raped her although she pleaded with the man not to and just because she resisted his attempts, he stabbed her.
To hide his crime, the accused then decided to kill her and stabbed her several times and dragged her to a faraway place making her easy meat for stray dogs. Luckily the victim survived, walked to a main road and waved to a passerby who took her to a hospital.
The victim, her compatriot friend and the taxi driver managed to pick the suspect from a legal lineup. The accused pretended to be suffering from mental problems but the Psychology Medicine Hospital proved otherwise. (Sources: indianfrontliners.com, 05/06/2014)
