A Venezuelan woman’s ordeal

From the Washington's Voz newspaper.

After four months of abduction, rape, and torture, came four years of a pilgrimage for justice in Venezuela 's judicial system, but Linda Loaiza is still recovering from the physical and emotional battering she suffered; and still waiting for the trial of her alleged tormentor.

In July of 2001, Loaiza was rescued by police in Caracas , Venezuela , from the apartment of Luis Carrera Almoina, the accused perpetrator. She had been repeatedly raped and tortured; she was found in a state of severe malnutrition, with her earlobes destroyed, a nipple cut out, cigarette burns all over her body, multiple cranial fractures, and bruises and cuts on her face and genital area.
