When a mosque preacher in Saudi Arabia received a message on his mobile offering advanced massage services for just SR50 ($13), he quickly phoned the number. A man replied and told him he could even earn money.
When the preacher in the capital Riyadh enquired about such a service, the man replied:” It depends on whether you are a receiver or giver.”
“The preacher immediately knew the man was homosexual…so he decided to trap him,” Sabq Arabic language daily said.
After they agreed to meet at a rented apartment, the preacher phoned members of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, the most feared Islamic law enforcement authority in the Gulf Kingdom.
“The preacher told the man by phone before they met that he is bearded…the man replied that it was ok with him….at the agreed time, the preacher went to the flat with the Commission members, who arrested that man.”
