A preacher in Saudi Arabia has spent some months in jail and paid a 31,000 pound fine for the rape and murder of his 5 year old child. Officials say that he doubted his daughter’s virginity and proceeded to burn, beat, and rape her. According to Saudi courts and law his sentence was a just one and the preacher, Fayhan al-Ghamdi, was set to be released. The Saudi Royal family has intervened and the justice system has delayed the preacher’s release and re-opened the case.
Officials have yet to comment what further proceedings may result in.
