The man collapsed
In what will come across as a rather dramatic development, an Indonesian man who was being flogged for a crime he committed has collapsd.
The man collapsed as he was flogged nearly 150 times Thursday for raping a child in conservative Aceh province, where public whipping is a common punishment for violating Islamic law.
According to the Agence France Presse, the 19-year-old grimaced and cried out as a masked sharia officer lashed his back with a rattan stick in the town of Idi.
He pleaded for the punishment to stop and was briefly treated by doctors before the flogging restarted.
The man was arrested earlier this year on charges he molested and raped the victim, whose age was not revealed.
He was sentenced to 146 lashes, a particularly high number reserved for the most serious crimes.
“The maximum sentence is meant to be a deterrent,” Ivan Nanjjar Alavi, an official from the East Aceh prosecutor’s office, told reporters.
