    Default 19-Year Old Saudi Rape Victim Ordered to Undergo 200 Lashes



    RIYADH, Saudi Arabia — A 19-year-old female victim of gang rape who initially was ordered to undergo 90 lashes for "being in the car of an unrelated male at the time of the rape," has been sentenced to 200 lashes and six months in jail for telling her story to the news media.

    The new verdict was handed down by Saudi Arabia's Higher Judicial Council following a retrial, the Arab News reported.

    The court last year sentenced the six heavily-armed men who carried out the attack against the Shiite woman to between one and five years for committing the crime.

    But the judges had decided to punish the woman further for "her attempt to aggravate and influence the judiciary through the media," a court source told the Arab News.

    The new verdict issued on Wednesday also toughened the sentences against the six men to between two and nine years in prison.

    Saudi Arabia enforces a strict Islamic doctrine that forbids unrelated men and women from associating with each other, bans women from driving and forces them to cover head-to-toe in public.

    The case has angered members of Saudi Arabia's Shiite community. The convicted men are Sunni Muslims, the dominant community in the oil-rich Gulf state.

    First off, poor girl. Impossible to imagine that kind of horror and whilst we have very few facts here the fact that the men were armed says one hell of a lot.

    regards the punishment, we all live in countries with laws we do not agree with. Lashes seem to most westerners a brutal form of torture. The death penalty is, to most Europeans, barbaric.

    I guess my point is, we know the laws of the countries we live in and, should we break those laws, we know what the punishment will be. If I stick cocaine up my nose daily and get caught, I would probably expect to be put behind bars. Is this right? I don't think so, and nor do i see this punishment for this woman to be right either.

    But we live in the countries we live in. Are the Saudi's using her as an example of something or to prove their "reasoning" for this law? Possible.

    However, all said and done, to a European mindset, this is compounding misery on misery.

    (hope I've made it clear that I do not condone this punishment. Just trying make a point on the nature of punishment in general)
    A man could lose himself in a country like this.

    Care to explain why my comments are so offensive, Herr Olo?

    What specifically are you offended about?

    Nick, I have to back OLO on this one. You pulled a FORD and went waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay off the deep end.

    OLO and I don't agree on much of anything politically; you and I see more eye to eye politically. But, in this instance, I do agree with OLO trying to keep this thread from going off into the abyss of stupidity.

    This had nothing to do with Iran.

    Let's keep the focus of the thread where it should be, the midevil punishment handed down to a girl that was victimized, tortured and then relegated to even MORE brutalization by a system that doesn't respect it's women.

    Gee kids, I wonder if the US will now abandon its huge arms sales to Saudi Arabia over this issue?


    Hmmmm...

    NO!

    Nope! They won't! Saudi Arabia is an "ally," despite the fact that most of the cunts that hijacked our airliners in 2001 and rammed them into skyscrapers were Saudis....

    Maybe the smarter of you can figure out my point? Cheers.
