SULAIMANI (ESTA) — A seven-year-old girl pupil has allegedly experienced rape inside one of the private schools in the city of Erbil, according to Esta reporter on Tuesday.

The reporter stated that he had contacted the president of the Human Rights Board of the Kurdistan Region, Muna Yaqu, over the alleged sex crime against the seven-year-old child.

The incident occurred at a private school in Ankawa, Erbil, where a teacher has been reportedly arrested on Wednesday in connection to the sex crime. He is accused of sexually assaulting the seven-year-old pupil for a year and a half.

The accused teacher is a 35-year-old man from Damascus, who served as a physical education instructor.

Yaqu told the reporter they will closely follow up on the case of the alleged sexual assault against the child, and noted that they will make a visit to the child’s family and Erbil security agencies to reveal the fact of the incident.

The child’s parents revealed that the teacher threatened their daughter, warning her that if she disclosed the abuse to anyone, he would “kill her.”
