Sign the Petition to President Mohammed Waheed Hassan

This petition closed 8 months ago

Her stepfather raped a young woman for years.  When she became pregnant, he murdered her baby.  The Maldives government proceeded to punish the criminal -- The courts decided that the 15 year old victim was the one who would be whipped 100 times in public, for the crime of "sex outside marriage."  There is only one thing that will get President Mohammed Waheed Hassan to intervene. Us. With human rights organizations around the world up in arms over this case, the president has caved to global pressure and saved this girl from brutality. But flogging still remains a punishment for women and children in Maldives -- including those who have been victims of rape and sexual abuse.  Please Join us as we work to stop punishing victims, and instead go after the perpetrators of the abuse.
