One such protester, Yamina Thabet, Head of the Tunisian Association that supports minorities said in this AFP video, “Everyone is scared today. It will be worse because, there is a breach of trust between the citizens and the Tunisian Police, therefore all crimes are allowed. If police can rape girls, if police can allow themselves to attack people, why not the normal citizens as well?”
The protesters present at the location were shouting their heart out so that their voices could be heard far and wide. They have been partially successful as the case is getting huge attention from citizens of the country, who feel justice should be delivered to the victims. The human rights groups and the strong feminist activists of the region are furious, as this could play an important role in instilling fear among girls not to report such cases, which is only going to increase the number of rape cases.
Another protester, Ayoub Messaou, former advisor to the Tunisian President, Moncef Marzouki, in this video said, “ I really hope justice will take its course and the real criminals will be punished and be made example of.” Irrespective of the fact, whether this rape case is solved or not, the Tunisian police has earned a bad name and will be looked down upon.
