I saw this when Musawah tweeted an alert about it.

The excuse is that they’re not actually punishing her for being raped by her stepfather, but because during the “investigation” (ie, the blaming the victim and digging into her sexual history that always seems to happen in rape cases even here), authorities discovered that she had consensual sex with someone else at some other time.

One commenter on the article about this that was posted at an independent Maldives news website asked the pertinent question, “Well, it takes two to fornicate so what’s happened to the men?”

Another commenter noted that the current president of the Maldives was an important official with UNICEF before becoming a politician, which adds pressure on the government to do something about what’s happening to this girl.

 Frank says:

The family was from Arkansas. The Dad (Dink) was a furniture salesman in San Bernardino, but back in the way-back-when he used to play 'bones' or 'spoons' in a minstrel show. To relive the golden days of yesteryear he would, from time to time, force his children to accompany him (Ronnie on guitar, Kenny on trombone) in a living room replay of a minstrel routine called "Lazy Bones."

The kids often found this to be an inconvenience, as they were fascinated by, and constantly perfecting new techniques for, The Manly Art Of Fart-Burning. Kenny explained to me that it was scientific - that it demonstrated (this is a real quote) "Compression, ignition, combustion and exhaust." -- Kenny & Ronnie Williams (later immortalized in "Let's Make The Water Turn Black").
