Yemen,10 year old Maab under torture by father,
'Swear you'll speak the truth without fear'
'I swear I'll speak the truth without fearing you or anyone'
'What does your mother tell you?'
'She tells me find handsome men and give them her or my number'
'Who did she ask you to give her number to?'
'To the handsome men'
'You're speaking the truth?
She taught them to **you?
She threatened you?
You didn't listen to your father right?
You're going to meet your God in hell right?'
The dialog in the videos was forced, she was tortured first,then forced to answer the questions to suite the killers future agenda of using the forced confession video to claim innocence in court. Yemen is a signatory of the convention of the rights of the child,yet, children have no protection.
Crime details from 2015:
Shortly after the videos were taken, the heartless father threw Maab down a mountain after continuously torturing her,and then shot two bullets on her back.Shepherds found the body of 10 year old Ma’ab in Ibb ,Yemen.
The killer has not been punished since he committed this unspeakable crime, he claimed it to be a crime of honor and used the videos of forced confession as proof, paid blood money and is out after a final court hearing in 2019.
After the inspection of Maab's body, it was confirmed that she was killed by two bullets in her back. There were torture marks and burns on her face.Her father(killer) and her mother were divorced in 2010 and he used torturing Maab as vengeance against her.
His final claims were that little #Maab was sleeping around with boys and men, thus,leading him to kill her. His deceitful claim was to cover up the monstrosity of the crime he committed against a helpless little girl who called him Daddy.
Medical reports proved the child was a virgin at death, yet upon confrontation her father(KILLER) insists she well deserved to die like that because as per his interview, "she was talking to my landlord and my nephew and they can TESTIFY". He proceeds to angrily leave the interview after being asked,"how could a 10 year old child speak with men in a sexual manner, and if you really believe so,what signs convinced you?".
The interrogation was a picnic, they tried to calmly make him understand that he "RUSHED" the decision to kill his daughter.
The justice system allowed this monster to run free after he tortured and KILLED 10 year old Maab because according to most Middleeastern penal codes fathers are not prosecuted for murdering their children for any reason whatsoever, they instead pay blood money and are released. Male guardians or family members are legally allowed to murder females (wives, sisters, daughters) who are suspected of adultry, extramarital relationships and evern speaking with a male since in their opinion honour crimes are cleansing their honour and keeping their name from getting tarnished amongst the society.
Women and girls deserve dignity but as long as penal laws/codes are biased and patriarchal we are all not safe.Laws that allow criminals to walk away after murder in the name of religion or "honor" are barbaric and breach every Human Rights convention signed by all states.
As for Maab's killer,he is free, the Yemeni court has ruled 5 years of jail (which they are considering as already served) and some blood money. To the judge: you have failed an innocent child, and thousands who will follow.
Maab did not get any justice, millions like her remain worldwide, unnamed, unknown and unheard of.The number of cases that made it to the public eye this year alone is gut wrenching,none got justice. The remainder of us will take back their/our dignity.
We demand penal codes/laws be amended to match international conventions of human rights, children's rights, women's rights, and the marginalized/vulnerable groups rights in all states. We demand criminals be prosecuted by respective states. We demand penalizing states that breach conventions against children. WE DEMAND THE PATRIARCHAL JUSTICE SYSTEMS TO FALL.
