This article concerns rape laws, crimes, and all aspect of society in the nation of Libya concerning rape crimes.

Case examples

A 14 year old girl in Bangladesh was raped. The wife of the man raping her caught them, and beat the girl. An imam at a local mosque decided the girl was guilty of adultery and issued a fatwa that she be given 100 lashes in public. She collapsed after 70, and was taken to a hospital where she died. [1] [2] This is a good example of how religious leaders have power over people, instead of just a strong legal system.

Women and girls who are raped are expected to spare everyone the embarrassment of a crime against their honor, by committing suicide. The doctors ruled the case as that. They are now investigating whether they killed her, based on additional wounds she received at the hospital.
