A 42-year-ld resident of Hisor, Husni Abdulloyev, who raped a 12-year-old neighbor girl, who is his first cousin, last year, has tried to pay the injured arty off.  He offered them money so that they take back their complaint filed in the prosecutor’s office.

Recall, the Social-Democratic Party of Tajikistan (SDPT) leader, Rahmatillo Zoyirov, wrote about this incident on his Facebook page on June 17.  SDPT leader noted in his open letter to the Interior Ministry and the Prosecutor-General’s Office that the 12-year-old girl from the Somon jamoat was raped by her 42-year-old neighbor last year. 

“The 42-year-old H.A. last year raped the 12-year-old neighbor girl in a cow-shed.  Threatening the girl and using her helpless state, he did this several times," Zoyirov wrote.  

According to him, when the girl’s parents found out about that, “H.A. by threats kept them from submitting an application [to the law enforcement authorities].” 

“When it turned out that the girl is pregnant, the parents went to the prosecutor’s office and police department in Hisor to complain about the rapist neighbor, but they didn’t accept the application.  Moreover, covering the rapist, they threatened [the parents] with grave consequences.”  

According to Zoyirov, the girl gave birth to the child two months ago, and now there is pressure on the girl and her parents “in order to solve everything peacefully and without consequences.”  

SDPT leader asks the Prosecutor-General’s Office and the Interior Ministry to take the case under their control so that the rapist would be punished.   

The girl’s uncle told Asia-Plus that Husni Abdulloyev has tried to pay them off.  “He offered us 10,000 somoni so that we take back our complaint filed in the prosecutor’s office but we refused.  Abdulloyev then began to threaten us through his friends, ” the man said.  

“Since local police station ad prosecutor’s office have ignored our applications, we have been forced to apply to the Interior Ministry, the Prosecutor-General’s Office and the public.  Only after that, we have been invited to the Interior Ministry Criminal Investigation Directorate to testify,” the girl’s uncle noted.  

According to him, the case has been sent for investigation to the Hisor prosecutor’s office and Husni Abdulloyev has been taken into custody.  

“We hope that justice will prevail and the rapist will be brought to justice and receive the punishment he deserves,” the girl’s mother, Sanifa Abdulloyeva, said.
