-Saudi Rape Victim is Pardoned by the King

by Dr. D ~ December 17th, 2007

The 19 year old Saudi woman who was the victim of gang rape received a pardon from the King of Saudi Arabia.

The young woman had been sentenced by a Saudi court to receive 200 lashes and 6 months in jail for being in the company of men who were not her relatives. This caused an international outcry against the Saudi justice system, and criticism from the US Government.

Response: It is good to see the Saudis finally responding to international pressure. For too long the Saudi Kingdom has remained insulated from the rest of the world.

It is a fine day for the young woman and her husband also, who is happy to see his wife receive a pardon. 

The Saudi Kingdom has received increasing criticism, coming from the West, of their justice system and also the obvious lack of religious freedom.

With the coming of international cable news networks, the Saudi Kingdom is no longer isolated and hidden from view. Hopefully this will mark the beginning of reforms in Saudi Arabia.            *Top
