Afghan woman forced to marry her rapist.

| No Comments

Afghan President Hamid Karzai freed a rape victim convicted of adultery on the condition that she marry her attacker.

Gulnaz said in government documents that she agreed to the marriage although she didn't want to marry the man, reported BBC News.

After she was raped, she was charged with adultery. Gulnaz talked about the unfairness of her accusations.

"At first my sentence was two years," Gulnaz told BBC News. "When I appealed it became 12 years. I didn't do anything. Why should I be sentenced for so long?"
