The ruling found that that the acts of the father and the mother were to be considered as criminal offenses according to relevant articles of the Penal Code. The judge referred the case to the grand jury in the North for trial of the defendants befor the Criminal Court at a later stage. Recalling, that the defendant rapes his four daughters in Tripoli and sold them for sex with the knowledge of their mother (c.f: https://bit.ly/2Gb2cRD).
