Saudi court on Friday sentenced a woman to receive 180 lashes and spend 8 months in prison. The woman is convicted of driving a car and allegedly resisting arrest by attacking security officers.
The SABQ online newspaper said that the security officers [private right litigants] attended the trial and demanded the enforcement of laws against the defendant.
According to the newspaper, the defendant appealed the ruling but her appeal was overturned by the Attorney General, and then the ruling was then approved by the Court of Appeal and turned to executive authorities for enforcement.
The newspaper did not mention the name or the identity of the suspect. Saudi Authorities did not issue an official statement regarding the case.
