Social media users have expressed anger over a trending video of a young lady being flogged for allegedly fornicating in Saudi Arabia.
The act, per the country’s custom, was a way of punishing offenders who violate some laid down laws in the country.
According to the video, which has received massive condemnation, the lady believed to be Ghanaian is expected to receive not less than 100 lashes or be thrown in jail.
In pain and tears, the young lady is heard pleading with the men to exercise patience during the act.
The video is however in clear violation of the flogging punishment which was abolished by the order of the Saudi Supreme Court General Commission in April this year.
While women who were caught prostituting or fornicating could previously be flogged, punishment for these crimes has now been limited to jail time or fines.
Foreign nationals who are caught can also be deported after punishment. The video cannot be posted here. Pls cut and copy address below (youtube) to watch it if interested:-
