PostSubject: Outrage as Italian court finds victim 'too ugly' to be raped   Wed Mar 13, 2019 9:16 pm

Italy’s Justice Ministry has ordered a preliminary inquiry into an appeals court ruling that overturned a rape verdict in part by arguing that the woman who was attacked was too ugly to be a credible rape victim.



The ruling has sparked outrage in Italy, prompting a flash mob Monday outside the Ancona court, where protesters shouted “shame!” and held up signs saying “indignation.”

The appeals sentence was handed down in 2017 — by an all-female panel — but the reasons behind it only emerged publicly when Italy’s high court annulled it on March 5 and ordered a retrial. The Court of Cassation said on Wednesday its own reasons for ordering the retrial will be issued next month.

Two Peruvian men were initially convicted of the 2015 rape of a Peruvian woman in Ancona, but the Italian appeals court overturned the verdict and absolved them, finding that she was not a credible witness.

In part of the ruling, the court noted that the suspects had found her unattractive and too “masculine” to be a credible rape victim.
