“[D]espite eye witness accounts and medical evidence indicating their guilt.” Considering that according to sharia, Christian testimony is worth half that of Muslim testimony, obviously such eye-witness accounts must have fallen on deaf ears. “Pakistan: Suspects in rape of Christian girl cleared,” from Compass Direct News, April 10:
Police in Muslim-majority nation suspected of corruption.
ISTANBUL, April 10 (Compass Direct News) — Police have declared three Pakistani men innocent of raping a 13-year-old Christian girl despite eye witness accounts and medical evidence indicating their guilt. At a hearing in Nankana Sahib district court on April 3, police from the Pakistani town of Sangla Hill, 64 miles from Lahore, cleared 40-year-old Mohammed Shahbaz, 30-year-old Waqas Sadiq and 25-year-old Yousaf Sadiq of accusations of raping and threatening Ambreen Masih. Shahbaz was the only suspect to attend the hearing, which was initially called to discuss terms of his pre-arrest bail.
But Judge Ijaz Hussan Awan said he couldn’t set terms for bail if police didn’t want to arrest or detain him. “In Pakistan it has always been like this — the wealthy person can approach the police and change the course of an investigation,” said prosecuting attorney Akbar Durrani. “Regarding Christians, they cannot put any pressure on the police for a fair investigation.”
