Morocco to reform rape law
Wednesday 23 January 2013
The Moroccan government said today that it plans to outlaw the traditional practice of forcing rapists to marry their victims.
Women’s rights activists welcomed Justice Minister Mustapha Ramid’s announcement but said that it was only a first step in reforming the law that still doesn’t do enough to stop violence against women.
The law allows those convicted of “corruption” or “kidnapping” of a child to go free if they marry their victim and the practice was encouraged to spare family shame.
