Article Summary   by:NicoleB    
ª
 
I first read about this two days ago in the local newspaper.
A woman in Saudi Arabia got gangraped by 7 men.
The men got jail sentences from 10 months to 5 years.
The woman, got a sentence of a few months jail and 60 lashes with a Bamboo whip.
Her lawyer spoke out against that at court.
He got stripped of his license and the woman is now facing 6 months in prison and 200 lashes.
No comment from the Government yet, because the whole thing is still in court.The reason why she gets punished too is, that in Saudi Arabia women are not allowed to leave the house without permission from a male relative.She left the house in the evening hours without that permission.
——————–
A few months back the case was the other way around though.
A man (not a Saudi, African if I remember right) helped his elderly female neighbor in an emergency to the hospital.
Without his help she would have died.
Religious police saw it different and the man ended up in jail.
No follow up on that.
