Muslim migrant aquitted of rape of 10 year old Finnish girl because court saw no evidence she was unable to defend herself or didn’t consent to rape. So if she struggles and risks physical harm she is being raped, if she is too scared or intimidated to fight she is not being raped. That is actually islamic law, now the law in Finland it would seem.
A 23-year-old Muslim migrant, Juusuf Muhamed Abbud, was acquitted of aggravated rape charges despite having had sexual intercourse with a 10-year-old girl. The court said it was “not clear that the girl was unable to defend herself or express her lack of consent.”
Helsinki Times: 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.
