21st century humanity

I read this article with horror & disbelief. Let’s summarise;

A man and a woman are arrested in Sudan and charged with adultery. The male denies that adultery has taken place, his word is accepted and he is released. The woman has a confession beaten out of her, which is also accepted, and she is sentenced to death by stoning.

How is it possible to commit adultery by yourself? This is like something out of Monty Python, except that it’s not funny.

  2. Disgusting. Why the man is released? What kind of system they have! Can't they see she accepted this only under pressure? Isn't there any punishment to her brother? Pathetic. Sudan law sucks! I think the law and system of Sudan should be killed first!

    'The woman has a confession beaten out of her' ...... yes, by her brother!

    What a thoroughly top bloke he must be - one can imagining him chuckling to his nephew (the woman's son) how he played a major part in her violent demise.

    The joys of islamic law, eh?
