Documenting the journey of a Cameroonian filmmaker
OMG! This young lady was given 100 lashes by police in the city of Khartoum, Sudan. This punishment is for wearing trousers beneath her islamic gown under Sharia Law.
The film shows the police carry out the punishment of flogging with a whip on the Sudanese girl in front of a crowd of people. The Girl received blows whip all over her body from the legs, back, arms and head wildly and violently. The girl was crying and lying on the ground squirming in pain, begging the policeman to stop hitting her, before another officer assisted him and participated in the beating.
It appears through the person who filmed the scene, if not one of the policemen, he should be well known to them. [SOURCE]
Below is what the Governor had to say about this:
“This woman was punished under sharia, Islamic law, but there was a mistake in the way the punishment was carried out,” Khartoum state Governor Abder Rahman al-Khidir of the ruling National Congress Party said.
