The Commission was very specific asking the Ethiopia to report back in six months about what they have done to remedy the situation so that similar cases won't occur.
Oftentimes, this happens because a man who wants to marry a girl cannot afford to pay the necessary dowry. So he and a group of other men will abduct the girl, rape her, and afterwards ask the village elders to approach the girl's family, saying, "She's no longer a virgin, she's not marriageable to anybody else anymore, so why not consent to this marriage?
This is a common practice. What was unusual in Woineshet's case is that the police in this village decided to arrest, prosecute and hold the rapist and his accomplices in the abduction accountable. That was in A few days after the arrest, the men were let out on bail.
They abducted her again, and this time they hid her and kept her captive for a month, until she managed to escape and made it to a police station. During her captivity, the men had forced her to sign a marriage contract — which, of course, is not what we think of as genuine consent.

In , the rapist husband was sentenced to 10 years in jail without parole and his accomplices were sentenced to 8 years. And throughout this whole appeals case, there were procedural moves to obstruct justice. The appellate court asked Woineshet to prove she had been a virgin before she had been raped, for example.
Our organization, which was representing Woineshet, appealed further until we exhausted all legal opportunities within Ethiopia. That took several years.

LOST (A Young Justice/Robin Fanfic)
Justice has been missing in my country for so long, the Fourth Republic gave us a made-up version of her, but she was promiscuous and so wrong, worst of all she could see. Distinguishing between foes and friends of the government, working through the hands of the EFCC. Until wiki leaked, and we heard him sing like a canary, humming a different tune before the Americans. Justice has been missing since the First Republic when Awo was thrown in prison for treason, Since the soil in Oloibiri bled oil, and the windfall from the boom stressed divisions.
Believe now, justice has been lost since Nigeria was found. Justice come home we miss you. Justice come back we need you.
