TUNIS, Tunisia (AP) — The Tunisian policemen charged with raping a woman have appealed to reverse last week's dismissal of "indecency" charges against her.
Tunisian Ministry of Justice spokesman Adel Riahi denied that the prosecution had anything to do with Monday's appeal to restore the indecency charge against the alleged rape victim.
The legal moves against the woman have outraged many Tunisians.
The 27-year-old woman says three police officers stopped her in a car in September, and one of them held her fiancé back while the other two raped her.
The police officers deny wrongdoing, and allege the couple had been engaged in "immoral" behavior.
The two policemen were charged with "rape with the threat of violence" and the other with corruption.
