Mere idioti fra Saudi-Arabien
Den advokat, der repræsenterede den pige, der blev idømt 200 piskeslag for at være voldtægtsoffer, som allerede har fået frataget sin bestalling, skal nu i retten anklaget for at udtrykke uenighed med sin klients dom og for at skade Saudi-Arabiens anseelse.
Black Iris of Jordan rapporterer:
By now, everyone has heard of the Saudi girl of Qatif, who was gang raped by seven men who found her in a car with an unrelated male in 2006. By now, everyone has also heard that she was sentenced by the court to initially receive 90 lashes for being in the car in the first place. By now, everyone has heard that her recent sentence appeal resulted in the number increasing to 200, with 6 months imprisonment. By now, everyone has heard that her rapists got 2 to 9 year sentences. And by now, everyone has had time to experience some sort of internal outrage on the entire case.Og det er så vores nærmeste allieredes nærmeste allierede i Mellem-Østen, det land, hvor vores næst-nærmeste allierede (Storbritannien) frejdigt og straffrit bestikker løs for at få solgt deres militære isenkram, og som vi derfor helst ikke vil kritisere alt for højlydt.
But today, to pour salt on the wound, the girl’s lawyer, Abdul-Rahman al-Lahem, who has had his law license revoked, is facing trial for voicing his disagreement with his client’s sentencing and thus insulting the Supreme court and of course, hurting the country’s image. Since this whole thing started Al-Lahem has used the media to shine a spotlight on the idiotic sentencing of the court. But in the court’s opinion, it isn’t this case nor the one million other Saudi mishaps that sully the country’s image, but rather one outspoken defense lawyer.
