受强奸指控前南非副总统被判无罪

2006-05-09 17:09VOA

审理倍受瞩目的前南非副总统祖马被控强暴其家庭一女性朋友案件的法官裁决祖马无罪。法官在电视和电台实况转播的宣判中说,原告和被告两人自愿发生了性关系。体内携带HIV艾滋病毒的31岁女原告说,她住在祖马家里的时候,祖马强迫与她发生性关系。祖马始终坚称,他们是自愿发生性关系,指控是诋毁其政治生涯阴谋的一部份。

大约5千名祖马的支持者聚集在戒备森严的法院外。对64岁的反种族歧视名人祖马的审判引起人们对南非多发的强奸案和HIV艾滋病毒感染注意。祖马一度被认为是接替姆贝基总统的有力竞争者之一。祖马去年面临同腐败有关的指控,姆贝基解除了他的职务。对祖马腐败案的审判定于7月开庭。


Former South African Deputy President Ruled Not Guilty in Rape Trial

The judge in South Africa's high-profile trial of former Deputy President Jacob Zuma has ruled he is not guilty of raping a family friend. The judge said, in a verdict broadcast live on television, that the two had consensual sex. The 31-year-old HIV positive accuser said Zuma forced her to have sex with him when she was staying at his home. Zuma had maintained the sex was consensual and the accusations were part of a campaign to destroy his political career.

Some five-thousand Zuma supporters are gathered outside the courthouse, which is under tight security. The trial of the 64-year-old anti-apartheid veteran has focused attention on South Africa's high incidence of rape and HIV infection. Zuma was once considered a strong contender to succeed President Thabo Mbeki, who fired him because of corruption-related accusations last year. Zuma is to stand trial on corruption charges in July.
