Violence against women in Sudan, A woman being whiped by police officers infront of a crowd
This Video clip depicts the scene of a Sudanese girl receiving blows whip all over her body at a police station in Khartoum this week, a wave of condemnation by the Sudanese on the Internet and newspapers concluding that, what happened was exceeding the legal punishment and much amounted to physical torture and severe humiliation.
The film shows the police carry out the punishment of flogging with a whip on the Sudanese girl in front of a crowd of people. The Girl received blows whip all over her body from the legs, back, arms and head wildly and violently. The girl was crying and lying on the ground squirming in pain, begging the policeman to stop hitting her, before another officer assisted him and participated in the beating.
It appears through the person who filmed the scene, if not one of the policemen, he should be well known to them.
It saddens me that we sit here and watch this and arent able to do anything about it. I hope that one day we can take a stand and make some real changes.
