Raped and accused
To the Magistrate Mohammad Bin Meftah:
As concerned citizens from across the Middle East and North Africa, we urge you to drop indecency accusations against the woman who was raped by two policemen. Tunisia must protect women's rights, not criminalize female victims. The world's eyes are on Tunisia now to side with justice and the values of the Tunisian revolution, and to leave police abuses firmly behind in the Ben Ali era.

The Tunisian president has now issued an official state apology to the woman -- but incredibly the Magistrate is still considering "indecency" charges against her. If we build massive pressure now and show the Tunisian government that this case is being watched closely by the entire region, we can shame the Magistrate to dropping this case.
Any day now, the Magistrate will make a decision, so if thousands of us raise our voices, we can tip the balance and help ensure that state institutions stop the flagrant abuse.
