Saudi Women Lashed and Jailed For Being Raped

by | 16th, November 2007

FROM the Anorak Forums news from Saudi Arabia. Writes AGW:

IT is good to see one country standing up for what is right and decency in general.

An appeal court in Saudi Arabia has doubled to 200 the number of lashes and added a jail sentence as punishment for a woman who was gang-raped…14 times.

Clearly all her fault and caused by the provocative way she sat inside a parked car.

The victim was held to have violated laws on segregation of the sexes – she was in an unrelated man’s car at the time of the attack.

The appeal judges said she and her lawyer had been attempting to use the media to influence them.

The attackers’ sentences – originally of up to five years – were also doubled.

The 19-year-old woman, from Saudi Arabia’s Shia minority, was gang-raped 14 times and
seven men from the majority Sunni community were found guilty of the rape and sentenced to prison terms ranging from just under a year to five years. The death penalty was available.

The victim’s lawyer was suspended from the case, has had his licence to work confiscated, and faces disciplinary procedures. (Tongue cut out? Limb lopped off? Tetes kebabed?)

Perhaps the Saudi king will intervene and stop all this nonsense by having this evil, tainted, pariah of a complaining female stoned to death.
