Child rapist collapses after being lashed 146 times with cane

2 min read

A rapist collapsed and begged for mercy after he was lashed 146 times with a cane during a public flogging.

The 19-year-old cried out as a masked sharia law officer whipped his back with a stick in the province of Aceh, Indonesia, for violating Islamic law.

He was sentenced to 146 lashes, a serious punishment reserved for the most heinous crimes after he was found to have molested and raped a minor.

The paedophile pleaded for the punishment to stop and was treated by doctors several times before the public punishment restarted.

After 52 lashings, the teen collapsed and was immediately taken to a medical centre for treatment as he developed "heavy blisters" on his back.

One of the doctors at the scene said: "When he was lashed 52 times, he was found on his right back there were heavy blisters, if he continued and was hit by the same beating, the blood vessels could burst and bleed.

"It is better if we postpone it until the recovery is good and the convict can be punished again."

Ivan Nanhhar Alavi, an official from the East Aceh prosecutor's office, told reporters the paedophile had "the maximum sentence" imposed as a "deterrent."

The punishment is dolled out as part of a version of Islamic religious law – known as Sharia – enforced in Aceh.

Amnesty International has condemned the practice, claiming the canings are a violation of human rights law.

The group said: "Punishable offences include consensual intimacy or sexual activity for unmarried couples, consensual sex outside marriage, same-sex sexual relations, the consumption and sale of alcohol, and gambling.

"Under international human rights law all forms of corporal punishment are prohibited – they violate the absolute prohibition of torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading punishment and often torture."
