On Saturday, loyalist media channels reported that the judicial system released a child rapist, who is accused of raping 14 children in the town of Kartu in the governorate of Tartus, Western Syria. The channels added that the judge was bribed to release the rapist.

Social media pages posted a voice record of a father saying that the released man has raped his son, but the judge decided to release him anyway. The rapist was arrested for only 17 days and he admitted to the crimes, according to the same record.   

In the record, the father accused the judge in charge of the case of receiving 4,000,000 Syrian Pounds as a bribe to release the rapist.
