Caught on tape! Politician rapes co-worker in parliament
A Bolivian lawmaker was captured on video surveillance camera in December raping a co-worker in a conference room at the parliament—and everyone who knew about the incident tried to cover it up and hide the evidence!
But a clip from the video was leaked over the Internet recently, and Domingo Alcibia Rivera—along with everyone connected with trying to keep the whole thing a secret—has been sacked. However, prosecutors are now going after the websites who posted the video as well!
According to US blog site Jezebel, the victim was passed out from an alcohol-fuelled holiday luncheon at the legislature on 20th December. And in the video, several people are seen carrying the unconscious woman into the room before putting her in a chair.
Shortly after, Rivera walks in and the others leave. Then the lights go out and Rivera, then a member of the ruling party Movement For Socialism, moves the woman to the floor to have sex with her. As he's raping her, the lights come on, causing Rivera to stop and actually talk to the man who's walked in.
Then the lights go off again, Rivera puts his pants back on and carries his victim onto a chair. He sits next to her and holds her for about five minutes until the lights are switched on again, and people start entering the room. That's when Rivera finally gets up to leave.
According to ABC.es, the guards on duty that night were fired after the incident. And Rivera, who has denied any wrongdoing but was kicked out of his political party anyway by an ethics committee, has conveniently disappeared.
Meanwhile, the rape victim remains unidentified by authorities although they say she has been transferred to another position. And according to La Razon, Bolivia's Attorney General is considering taking legal action against the media outlets and websites that posted the video and exposed the crime!
