    Afghan rape victim who had been sentenced for 12 years after reporting the rape gets a pardon, will not be required to marry her rapist

    Afghan President Hamid Karzai has ordered the release of an Afghan woman imprisoned for adultery after a relative raped her.
    The move comes after Afghan judicial authorities met to consider the case and proposed a pardon for her on Thursday. CNN is identifying her only as Gulnaz to protect her identity.
    Gulnaz had been sentenced to prison for 12 years after she reported that her cousin's husband had raped her two years ago.
    The woman is raising her daughter in jail and had previously agreed to marry her attacker in order to be released and legitimize her daughter.
    Karzai said he's asked the justice minister to meet with the woman and her rapist to find out whether she wants to marry him and legitimize her daughter. The president said he was concerned that if the woman went back to her village after her release, she may face reprisals from the conservative society.
    However, a Karzai spokesman told CNN such a marriage is not a condition of the release.

    You have no idea how happy I am to live in this country. Being female is hazardous enough.
