Today, a special court in Bangladesh sentenced five men to death for raping a fifteen-year-old teenager in 2012, amid a climate of mounting anger over sexual assaults against women..

A special court has been set up in the Tangail district in the north of the country to hear cases of sexual assault against women and children.

Prosecutor Nassim Ahmed told AFP that one of the perpetrators took the girl to the bank of a lake, where he took turns raping her with his friends.

“The five men were condemned and sentenced to death,” he added.

These sentences are the first since the death penalty for those convicted of rape in the country became the death penalty, according to a decision taken by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina at the beginning of the week, following a series of attacks that sparked a wave of protests in the country.

The maximum penalty in cases of gang rape was the death penalty in the first place, which was also not applicable to cases of rape committed by one person, as the maximum penalty was life imprisonment..

The capital, Dhaka, and several cities in the country have witnessed demonstrations in recent days to demand punishment for the perpetrators of rape, following the spread of a video showing men assaulting a poor woman..

Some demonstrators called for the resignation of the prime minister, in an unusual appearance in this country that rarely witnesses such public criticism of the government..

Demonstrators in Dhaka and other cities demanded harsher penalties and speeding up trials to put an end to what they describe as a culture of impunity for perpetrators of attacks on women..

It is estimated that only 3 percent of rape cases result in the conviction of rapists.

A local association reported that 208 cases of gang rape were recorded in the first nine months of the current year.

Bangladesh, which has a population of 168 million, consistently carries out death sentences despite criticism from rights groups.

The authorities have executed 23 people by hanging since 2013, and at least 1,718 others are awaiting implementation of this punishment, according to a local human rights group..

Today, the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet, said that imposing the death penalty on perpetrators of rape, similar to what Bangladesh did, is not a solution, as this lacks a deterrent effect..
