Today, the Taiz Court sentenced M. S. to five years in jail with enforcement and a fine of 1,200,000 riyals (about $4,000). It also sentenced the accomplice to the crime to one year in jail and a 200,000 riyal punishment. Ali Al-Sarari, a lawyer who assisted the victim and served as a Seyaj organization representative in Taiz Governorate, revealed that the 13-year-old’s family was pleased to learn of the verdict.

Seyaj thanked both the President of the Court, Judge Mujib Al-Saba’a, and the member of the Public Prosecution, Abdul Rahman Qassem, for their role in securing justice for the child and his family. While such cases generally take a long time to resolve, increasing the likelihood of criminal impunity and severely impacting victims, this case was resolved in record time.
