THE DAILY STAR :: News :: Local News :: Saudi court sentences Lebanese to year in jail, 200 lashes
BEIRUT: A court in the Saudi Arabian city of Jeddah sentenced an unidentified Lebanese man to one year in prison and 200 lashes after he was convicted of drawing tattoos on the bodies of Saudi women and being a women’s hairdresser, a Saudi newspaper said Tuesday.

Al-Madina newspaper reported that the district court also fined the man.

The article said the Lebanese man, known as "The King of Tattoos" was arrested when a member of the Squad for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice pretended to be a driver for one of his female clients.

The squad confiscated a bag in his possession which contained several lotions, some for weight loss, others for eliminating skin discoloration from the knees, and yet others for breast lifting, massage and enhancement. They also confiscated artificial eye lashes and products for hair coloring.

The Saudi paper also said that when the man was arrested, he told the squad that he used these products as part of his work in Lebanon as a hairdresser, denying that he used them on Saudi women.

During the subsequent investigation, police found text messages on his cellular phone from women indicating that he had tattooed their bodies at their residence. They also found pictures of tattooed women.

The squad also found business cards he distributed to female clients.

According to the paper, the investigation revealed that the Lebanese man had been working as a hairdresser and tattoo artist for nine years by entering the country on commercial visas.

He reportedly received women in an apartment he rented but later began going to the women's houses as he thought this would be safer.

Some thirteen years after the event, the shadow of
the

9/11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center
in Manhattan and the Pentagon still darkens our
world. The legacy of that terrible day has impacted
not only our foreign policy, bequeathing to a new
