Rapists attacked woman in her apartment




Kuwait’s Court of Appeals has upheld a verdict by a lower court to sentence two rapists to five years in jail and pay their victim 53,000 dinars (Dh687,739) in compensation.

The defendants were found guilty of assaulting a young woman and raping her in her apartment.

According to the case papers, the victim had invited friends to a dinner party. However, she felt tired and went to her room to rest. She was later woken up by bangs on the door and the two men storming into the room where they assaulted and raped her. Before leaving, they took her mobile phones, credit cards and money, local daily Al Rai reported on Monday.

During the trial in the lower court, the victim’s lawyer said the victim had suffered morally and materially from the attack and that her reputation had been tarnished.
