A woman, identified as Halima, crouches on the ground while a police officer flogs her with his whip.
Sudan’s public order law lets police officers publicly whip women who are accused of public indecency. The woman in this YouTube video was reportedly riding in a car with a man who wasn’t her husband or an immediate family member.
She was reportedly guilty of riding in a car with a man who wasn’t her husband or an immediate family member, an offense that is prohibited by Sudan’s public order law.
The woman, reportedly named Halima, crouches on the ground and tries to cover her head with a light pink cloth while a police officer walks around her with a whip, stopping to aim before lashing out at her body.
At about 0:39 seconds into the video, the police officer warns the woman, “This is so you don’t get into cars anymore,” according to France24.
A crowd of onlookers stands nearby, simply watching while the woman is attacked.
