France: Update--April 22 Gang-Rape of Canadian Tourist, 34, Covered By Media as If It Never Happened

COMMENT: As someone who has always sought transparency and clarity in my professional work, I am sadly disappointed in the lack of media coverage, both in France and in the international media, re: the April 22 gang-rape of a 34-year-old Canadian tourist from Toronto.

My last posting was on May 2. 

How could that be? Admittedly, the young woman failed to make prudent choices, but "no" still means "no."

What is most bothersome is that the apparent rapists at this late date have still not been identified.

The only conclusion that one can make is that the search for justice in France is very elusive indeed.
