Saudi woman jailed for illegal Starbucks meeting

A Saudi businesswoman was detained and strip-searched by Saudi Arabia's religious police for sitting in a Starbucks coffee shop with an unrelated man, taboo in the country, a newspaper reported on Tuesday.

The English-language Arab News quoted a 40-year-old financial consultant, named only as Yara, as saying she was arrested on Monday by members of the powerful Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice.

She said she was holding a business meeting with the man in a branch of Starbucks in Riyadh, in a section reserved for families. Saudi law requires that unrelated men and women be segregated in public.

Yara said she was taken to a Riyadh prison, strip-searched and forced to sign a confession to having been caught alone with a unrelated man -- an illegal act in the kingdom which enforces a strict Islamic moral code.

"I had no other choice" but to sign, said the married mother of three. "I was scared for my life ... I was afraid that they would abuse me or do something to me."

She said the religious police, known as the Muttawa, released her several hours later after her husband, Hatim, intervened.

"I look at this as if she had been kidnapped by thugs," said Hatim.

The paper said the man with whom Yara had coffee, an unnamed Syrian financial analyst, was also arrested and remains in custody.

Saudi Arabia's 5,000-strong religious police have recently been investigated over a number of deaths that occurred while they raided homes or kept people in custody.

The interior ministry issued a decree in May 2006 aimed at reining in the Muttawa by requiring them not to interrogate detained suspects, as they had previously done, but to hand them over to the regular police instead.

That is how moslems treat their women under Shari Laws

What about the man … whom the women was seating with him (MM:}… why he was not charged as well…. Why women are always the victim in Saudi Arabia under Shari Laws.
I remember 2 months ago an international out cry to the King of Saudi to pardon a Moslem women (Raped Victim) from charges and flogging after she was raped by 7 men in Saudi Arabia ….. the reason is that she was with a man who was not a relative to the women in a CAR when they were attacked by 7 animals and both the male & the female was raped….below is the full story and the source
Saudi king pardons rape victim women
Tuesday Dec 18 06:00 AEDT
"Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah has pardoned a gang-rape victim whose sentencing to 200 lashes by a Saudi court provoked an international outcry, a Saudi newspaper reported on Monday.
The daily al-Jazirah cited Justice Minister Abdullah bin Mohammad al-Sheikh as saying the king had the right to issue pardons if it was in the public interest.
The minister did not confirm if the amnesty, reported from unnamed sources, was correct.
The Saudi monarch usually issues pardons to mark the Muslim Eid al-Adha festival which begins on Wednesday, but such announcements are published on the official Saudi Press Agency.
The 19-year-old Shi'ite woman was abducted and raped along with a male companion by seven men last year in a case that has drawn criticism from around the world.
Ruling according to Saudi Arabia's strict reading of Islamic law, a court originally sentenced the woman to 90 lashes for being alone with an unrelated man and the rapists to prison terms of up to five years.
The Supreme Judicial Council last month increased the sentence to 200 lashes and six months in prison and ordered the rapists to serve between two years and nine years in prison"Where are the women rights in the Islam….. they are still using lashes. Against humans, and against women victims….. what justice is this
.... !!!
