In Morocco, a man who has sex with an under-aged girl can escape prosecution by marrying her. Some judges even allow a man accused of raping a girl to go free as long as he marries her.
That’s what happened in the case of 16-year-old Amina Filali. Her family says she was raped by a local man. Amina’s father, Lahcen Filali, said the prosecutor offered marriage as a way to restore his daughter’s honor.
