to balk at British 'justice' when the Saudis are involved?

If you can't be bothered clicking the link. I'll summarise: A Saudi millionaire property developer has been cleared of raping a teenage girl after claiming he accidentally tripped and fell on her. He said his penis might have been poking out of his underwear when he fell on the teen.....

Mail Online also reported that Judge Martin Griffiths had allowed Mr Abdulaziz to give evidence in private.

I'm wondering if that privilege would have been offered to some bloke on benefits living in a council flat ?

Don't diss the Saudi's, they'll start charging us more for oil and all the prices in the shops will go up.

Yanbu except we've had a few million threads on this already. It stinks though.

Oh sorry I didn't realise it's been gone through. I only found out today.

When I first heard the details and the planned defence I thought it was ridiculous and should be laughed out of court, but part of me was worried. Then he got away with it and my heart sank when I found out. That poor girl. I don't see what is to happen to stop the same defence being used in future rape cases.

Testicle - nothing is being done. Soon we'll be back Thomas Erskine.
