Letter: Saudi nurses
Friday 26 September 1997
The Saudi ambassador bases his justification of his country's legal system on religion. Is he saying that the Saudis would be content to put one innocent person to death, subject another to protracted torture, and allow the culprit to escape scot-free?
Is there nothing in Saudi religion which obliges them to look at how evidence is obtained, to weigh it carefully and look for proof beyond reasonable doubt, before they exact their punishments? Perhaps the Saudi ambassador could answer these perfectly reasonable questions. His punishments may be his business, but the truth is God's business - in his country or in any country. For God's sake, let the truth be spoken.
