He deserves much worse than this…that sick bastard! Hello
A Saudi self-styled preacher has been sentenced to eight years in prison and 600 lashes for raping and torturing to death his 5-year-old daughter, according to reports.
Fayhan al-Ghamdi, who is not recognised as a cleric by the Saudi religious circle, was also ordered to pay his ex-wife one million riyals (£168,000) in “blood money”, according to lawyer Turki al-Rasheed.
Lama al-Ghamdi was admitted to hospital in December 2011 with multiple injuries, including a crushed skull, broken ribs and left arm, extensive burns, and fingernails torn off.
She had been beaten with a cane and electric cables and died 10 months later. According to some reports, al-Ghamdi had suspected his daughter lose her virginity and had tortured her in response.
Randa al-Kaleeb, a social worker from the hospital where Lama was admitted, said the girl’s back was broken and that she had been raped “everywhere”.
Ghamdi was a regular guest on Muslim television networks and eventually confessed to having inflicted the girls the fatal injuries.
