Kuwait Gang Rape

BAHRAINI human rights activist Faisal Fulad accompanied a Bahraini woman, who claimed she was raped by 11 men, to the Kuwait Public Prosecution yesterday.

Bahrain Human Rights Watch Society (BHRWS) regional and international director Faisal Fulad requested for her passport to be returned after it was allegedly stolen by one of the accused.

The Bahrain Embassy in Kuwait was also represented at the meeting.

"We asked the Public Prosecution to hasten the medical examiner's analysis of the victim's heath condition," said Mr Fulad.

"We have asked that the accused should get the toughest punishment."

The 20-year-old mother claims she went to Kuwait to find work, but was kidnapped, raped by 11 men and forced to take drugs.

However, police in Bahrain have said the woman left her husband and ran away to Kuwait to meet her lover.
