A Sri Lankan soldier in Haiti, part of a UN peacekeeping mission, has been accused of rape.
The Sentinel reported that an 18 year old woman, pulled over while traveling on Route National 2, in the town of Leogane last Saturday, was raped by the soldier.
According to reports the soldier was part of a road check and signaled the victim to pull over into a side area. He then took the victim into a part of a structure not occupied by anyone where he choked and raped her.
A Justice of the Peace gave an ordinance to take the victim to the state hospital in Petit Goave, where she can have a medically certified attest of rape that can accompany her in her quest for justice. via | Colombo Gazette
