Original reports said that the rape victim was given the 200 lashes punishment because she was caught riding in a car with a man to whom she was not related. Now the Saudi Justice minister claims that the victim, "confessed to doing what God has forbidden...The charged girl is a married woman who confessed to having an affair with the man she was caught with." There are also reports that the female victim's male companion and alleged lover were raped by the same group of men.
