Saudi sex braggart appears in court
September 28, 2009 1:23 by kippreport
At first it was amusing to read about Saudi Arabia’s sex braggart, who shocked his nation with details of his sexual exploits on an Arabic-language show titled “Bold Red Line,” produced by Lebanese TV station LBC.
However, we soon realized that 32-year-old Mazen Abdul Jawad’s life was crumbling rapidly, and in spite of being sexist and immature, he doesn’t deserve what he’s going through.
On Sunday he appeared before a Jeddah court along with three “accomplices” who also appeared on the program. The charges were read out, but they weren’t announced to the press.
Jawad’s mother collapsed and was rushed to hospital last week upon hearing about her son’s impending trial. She’s already fainted once, and his ordeal has only just begun.
This is heartbreaking.
