Libyan court orders flogging
Friday 08 January 1993
Libya says the Koran forms the basis of its constitution but it does not normally apply the corporal punishments stipulated in the Koran, such as amputation for theft and whipping for adultery. The newspaper, al-Mizan, named the man as Said Moumen and the women as Latifa Jibril. It said they were sentenced by the Tripoli appeals court but it did not say when the trial ended or whether the sentence had been carried out.
