Today's lunch discussion topic among our volunteers at the community centre not surprisingly was sexual harassment, rape and pedophiles. Nice.
One of our US volunteers asked a bunch of local guys how would allegations of child sexual abuse be viewed and dealt with here. The answer basically was lynching. They told us that about seven years ago some guy in a village about twenty miles away got drunk and raped a 12 year old girl. The girl's father took an axe and minced his head with it before the police could even get involved.
- He murdered him right away?
- He executed him.
After a long court hearing he got a suspended sentence. The girl's family also left the village and moved to a different region of the country. So did the pedophile's family.
