The judge ruled that the victim was actually “willing or prepared for sex”. Just because of the type of knickers she had on in during the alleged sexual assault.

According to local media reports, a judge, including two women and a man, ruled that the female victim was not the shy and introverted person she pretended to be. This controversial ruling has caused outrage across the country.

The decision came from judges Ronald Anayhuaman Andia, Diana Jurado Espino and Lucy Castro Chacaltana, they said that the red underwear shows that this is not rape.

Furthermore, the judge said in the ruling of the Criminal Court of the Temporary State University of Ica, Peru:

“The supposed personality (shy) represented by her does not relate to the undergarment she used on the day of the incident.”

“This type of women’s underwear is normally used on special occasions leading to moments of intimacy, which gives the impression that the woman prepared or willing to have sexual relations with the accused.”

The rape case has originally reported by a 20-year-old victim in late January 2019. However, the victim has not been named due to legal reasons.

In addition, the young woman claimed that the defendant lost consciousness after taking her to a party under false pretexts, which was known locally as 22-year-old Giancarlo Miguel Espinoza Ramos.

She said that the next day she slept naked in Espinoza Ramos’ bed.

Since the controversial ruling on October 29, protesters have urged officials to overturn the decision.

The demonstrators made a “stop” gesture with their hands. They lined up in a row on both sides of the square and public buildings. The red underwear pull down around their legs to show their solidarity with the victims.

Moreover, Some angry protesters held up signs that included:
“Listen up, judges. Don’t use my underwear to justify rape.”
Not only that, others held up slogans with the face of the judge who made the verdict and conveyed the message.
“Lace is just lace, it’s not an insinuation.”
