On the same subject, the law states that if a woman claims to have been raped, but her hymen has not been torn off to the walls of the vagina, it is not considered rape. What the authors of this code clearly don’t understand is that this 2 cm “honor” layer may not have been there in the first place for a variety of reasons. The hymen can be broken from intercourse (yes, married or unmarried), exercise, or even in an accident.
What’s even worse is that the law basically admits a woman was raped, but that because they aren’t aware of when the woman’s hymen was ripped, it doesn’t “count.” Apparently, they are also unaware that other evidence can be used to identify rapists, such as wounds, semen or criminal investigations. Absurd.
