Case #127: Legal assistance in a rape case

Vulnerable group: women

Human rights area: crime against sexual freedom and integrity

A new case was taken over through The Pro Bono Network for Human Rights. The case concerns a young female student who filed a criminal complaint with the police for the crime of rape. After attending an art exhibition, she went with several people she knew to a local restaurant for dinner, including two boys who started making inappropriate jokes. After dinner they all went to a mutual friend's apartment, and she told them it was okay if they all stayed there overnight and set up separate rooms for them to sleep in. One of the boys came in on the beneficiary in the room during the night, undressed her while she was unconscious and had sex with her, and she started crying and told him to get off her - which he subsequently did. In the morning she went to complain to the police and an officer took her to the coroner. The beneficiary requested assistance in further legal proceedings.

The case was taken over by lawyer Adelina-Corina Răcășan (Cluj Bar) to whom we thank and wish a lot of success in solving the case!
