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

Thursday, November 15, 2007

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…

Yes, the Koran and Sharia laws are the perfect guide to life.

How can there be any doubt?

By the way, sex change operations, especially from female to male seem to be growing in popularity in the Saudi kingdom.

Hussein Rabei, 33, shows a photo of himself in traditional women’s wear sitting on a Saudi-registered car with his brother before he underwent a sex change surgery, in the Bahraini capital of Manama October 26, 2007.

Who can blame them?
