    Default The crime is related to homemade wine.

    The crime is related to homemade wine. But can 74-year-old Karl Andree survive the punishment -- 360 lashes by Saudi authorities?

    His son fears that he won't, conceding that while Andree may have done wrong in the eyes of Saudi officials, it shouldn't warrant what may amount to a death sentence.

    "I completely understand that he has committed a crime and, for that, you have to face consequences ... He understands as well," Simon Andree told CNN. "But ... on the basis of his ill health, (I hope) he can get clemency and get released, because I feel he won't survive those lashes."

    Alcohol -- like narcotics, weapons, pork and pornography -- are prohibited in Saudi Arabia, in line with the Middle Eastern nation's strict Wahhabi interpretation of Islam. And it's what got Karl Andree in trouble, for transporting homemade wine in his car.

    The British grandfather has since spent more than a year in custody.

    Simon Andree acknowledges the Saudi law in this case. But he also appealed for authorities there to take into account his father's physical condition.

    "He's an old man," the son said.

    My brother lived in Saudi for 7 years. Hated it but loved the money. He said alcohol was readily available on the expatriate compounds, but he thought those that made it and transported it were nuts. They make damn sure you know the laws there. I don't feel much pity for those that get caught...

    I agree 100%....but what really drives me nuts is that the people that move from those countries to our countries fully expect to live like they did in their home countries AND we are to accept and accommodate their wishes. BUT they only want us to honor the things that they want us to honor...not the cutting off of the hands for stealing etc.

    You couldn't pay me enough to live in a Muslim country.

    You're selling out your personal freedom.

    It's also why I'd never live in Utah.
