Harrowing tale of a Tunisian woman and her fiancé being stopped by police:
“One of them put me in handcuffs and demanded 300 dinars [150 euros],” said Ahmed in a phone interview with FRANCE 24 from Tunis. The 26-year-old Tunis resident did not have 300 dinars on him, so the policeman “took everything I had - about 40 dinars [20 euros] - and during that time, the two other policemen led my fiancée to the back of their car and raped her,” disclosed Ahmed, his voice quivering with raw emotion.
The aftermath is even worse.
Apparently Tunisian women enjoy quite a bit of freedom compared to the rest of the Arab world, but rape is still being used to oppress.
