Teen who killed her rapist husband continues her fight
August 29, 2018 | World | No Comments|
The legal team representing Sudanese teenager Noura Hussein, who killed her 35-year-old husband as he tried to rape her in what she says was self-defense, filed an appeal to Sudan’s Supreme Court on Thursday to have her sentence overturned.
Hussein was on death row for fatally stabbing Abdulrahman Mohamed Hammad until two weeks ago, when an appeals court in Sudan reduced her sentence to five years in jail following an international outcry over her case. The court ordered her family to pay 337,000 Sudanese pounds (about $18,600) in “blood money” to the man’s family.
Her lawyers have also appealed the payment.
