Sleman Noor who raped Miss World 1998 is free NOW!
Just seven weeks before being crowned Miss World, Abargil was raped at knifepoint by her travel agent, Uri Shlomo Nur, in Milan, Italy. She reported the rape to Italian authorities, who initially released him due to lack of evidence. She later reported the rape to Israeli authorities, who issued an arrest warrant for Sleman Noor and began extradition proceedings. Nur was eventually tricked into returning to Israel. He was tried for rape, and was convicted, with DNA evidence found in his car serving as the basis for his conviction. He was sentenced to 16 years in prison. Abargil called for other women to follow her example.
