A 16 year-old girl may lose her eye as punishment for chatting on MSN. Caught while she was on the computer one day in December, she was beaten and held prisoner in the family apartment in the Raguenets housing project in Saint-Gratien (Val d'Oise). The victim was punished by her two brothers had with the approval of their strict Muslim parents. The four of them had held a family counsel to escape from legal consequences. Yesterday, the brothers and parents were arraigned before a magistrate in the court of Pontoise, charged with deliberate violence, sequestration for more than seven days, and depriving the victim of medical treatment.
The investigation was triggered when the young woman consulted an ophthalmologist one month after the incident, when she was finally able to leave the apartment. Suffering from injury to one eye, she was able to consult a specialist who did not fail [sic] to note that she had been struck. She is in danger of losing the injured eye.
Sequestered for eight days under terrible conditions
At best, according to certain information, she will be left with radically diminished sight in that eye. Yesterday it was suggested the visual acuity would be no more than 1/10th [= 10/20 ?]. The specialist immediately notified authorities and the case was opened.
The court charged the Enghien police department to investigate the case. A preliminary investigation led to the arrest on Wednesday of the victim’s parents and her two brothers. The older brother, who is in his thirties, is suspected of playing a major role. The family kept the teen prisoner in the apartment for eight days under terrible conditions.
The mayor of Saint-Gratien, Jacqueline Eustache-Brinio—of [Sarkozy’s] UMP party—said: “This cannot be tolerated in France in the 21st Century. You do not put out the eye of a child for religious reasons. The parents have to understand that this is a very serious act.”
