9-7-2019

The General Directorate of the Internal Security Forces- Public Relations Department, declared in a statement yesterday that information available at the Regional Gendarmerie South Investigative Unit pointed to the collective rape of an underage Syrian girl (14 years) who was also videoed and blackmailed. The ISF statement went on to say that, upon surveillance and follow up, the above Unit managed to identify and arrest the 8 perpetrators in three towns south of the country. The felons, after confessing to the rape and extortion, were referred to Saida’s Judiciary police station and the Anti-Human Trafficking and Morals Protection Bureau for interrogation, while the girl was taken to a care center as required. On the other hand, the Investigative Judge in Mount Lebanon, Rania Yahfouf, referred the defendant H.A to the Mount Lebanon Criminal Court after shooting his wife with a machine gun on 1/2/2017, in an attempt to kill her. The wife, who was shot in her leg, managed to escape and sue her husband but dropped her personal claim later. (Al Mustaqbal, Al Diyar, July 9, 2019)
