Couple to be lashed for meeting in ‘dark place’

A Saudi court sentenced a local man and his girl friend to 50 lashes each and ordered him to wash 10 dead people after they were caught in a car parked in a deserted place under the cover of night.

The judge also sentenced the man to 15 days in prison and ordered him to memorize 10 Koran verses and 100 sayings by the Prophet Mohammed (Peace Be Upon Him), according to Sabq newspaper.

“The man will be lashed in pubic in front of a mosque while the girl will also be flogged in front of a crowd of women.”

The paper said the two were involved in an “indecent act” in the car in a dark place when they were seized by members of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice.
