Man 'had sex with sister-in-law, 13'

A BAHRAINI who had sex with his 13-year-old sister-in-law more than 20 times over a year, after seducing her with pornographic films, has been jailed for three years.

Two other Bahrainis, aged 15 and 20, were also jailed for three years for sexual offences involving the girl and her 17-year-old friend.

The 26-year-old was convicted of repeatedly sexually abusing the 13-year-old at his home.

The younger two were accused of having sex with the girl, in a tent at the Sakhir camping area, in December last year.

The 20-year-old was also accused of sexually molesting the 17-year-old in the same tent, on the same day.

The 20-year-old denied having sex with either of the girls.

The 15-year-old denied threatening the 13-year-old, saying he partially had sex with her.

The 26-year-old denied sexually abusing his sister-in-law.

"I simply used to touch her body," he said earlier.

Both girls told police how they were lured into a car after going to meet the older girl's 20-year-old male friend near his home.

The 15-year-old also got in the car and the girls were taken to a tent in Sakhir.

The younger girl told how she and the younger boy stayed in one section of the tent, while the others went into another.

She said the younger boy repeatedly abused her sexually, then the 20-year-old also came in and assaulted her.

The girl said that the younger defendant started kissing her and told her to take off her clothes.

She said she refused at first, then agreed after he threatened to expose her at school and spoil her reputation.

The girl said they were then taken back to school and they took the school bus home, but someone told the school supervisor, who told her brother. He called the police.

She told police that her brother-in-law had had sex with her more than 20 times over a year.

"He used to exploit the absence of my elder sister when she went to work. He would come to our house and take me to his flat, where he sexually abused me," said the girl.

"He would put on pornographic movies and then ask me to do the same things with him. At first I as scared, but then I let him sexually abuse me."

The 17-year-old Bahraini schoolgirl confirmed the incident in the tent, saying the 20-year-old kissed and sexually abused her.
