  A Sudanese court on Wednesday sentenced 19 young Muslim men to 30 lashes and a fine for breaking moral codes by wearing women's clothes and makeup.

  The trial judge said police had raided a party thrown by the 19 men and found them dancing "in a womanly fashion," wearing women's clothes and makeup. The defendants were charged with violating Sudan's public morality codes. Many of the defendants tried to hide their faces from the around 200 people who watched as they were lashed straight after their sentencing.

  One lawyer, who declined to be named, said legal advocates would have been afraid to take on such a defense. "These people did not get a chance for justice," he said. "Public opinion and the media prejudged them and lawyers were too scared to come and defend them."

  Islamic sharia law has been weaved into Sudan's legal code and was a sticking point in a 2005 peace deal which ended more than two decades of civil war between Khartoum's Islamists and the mostly Christian and animist southern rebels.

  据英国路透社报道,苏丹法庭4号判处19名年轻穆斯林男子每人30鞭的鞭刑以及罚款,原因是被他们穿着女性服装,而且浓妆艳抹。

  一位审判法官称,苏丹警方突袭了一个聚会,19名男子正身着女装浓妆艳抹,跳着“女式舞蹈”。于是该19名男子被指控违反了苏丹公共道德准则。判刑后直接行刑,在200人的围观下,19名男子中的大部分人努力遮住自己的脸。

  一位不愿透露姓名的律师称,辩护律师们不敢为这些男子辩护。“这些人毫无得到公平裁断的机会,”他说。“公众和媒体对他们有偏见,而律师也是怕得不敢站出来辩护。”

  2005年,喀土穆伊斯兰主义者与南部的叛军——基督徒和万物有灵论者达成和平协议,二十年的内战就此结束,伊斯兰教法于是被纳入苏丹法典并成为基本法律准则。
