A 19-year-old Indonesian man who was arrested for raping a child Collapsed on Thursday after he was lashed nearly 150 times by a sharia officer.
The incident reportedly took place in Aceh province, a religiously conservative territory where public whipping is a common punishment for violating Islamic law.
He pleaded for the punishment to stop and was briefly treated by doctors before the flogging restarted.
The sharia court sentenced him to 146 lashes, after he arrested earlier this year on charges he molested and raped the victim, whose age was not revealed.
Ivan Nanjjar Alavi, an official from the East Aceh prosecutor’s office said:
The maximum sentence is meant to be a deterrent.
Aceh province is the only region in Muslim-majority Indonesia to impose Islamic sharia law, which allows flogging for a range of offences including prostitution, gambling, adultery, drinking alcohol, and gay sex.
