Chil­dren par­don fa­ther and ac­cept blood money for mother’s death

7 Days in Dubai - - DEAR 7 DAYS... -

“There’s some­thing se­ri­ously wrong with the jus­tice sys­tem when you can be par­doned for mur­der and tor­ture of chil­dren in ex­change for cash!”

PAUL HOUS­TON

“They are par­doned of death penalty, but they will pay cash and serve a pretty long time in prison.” MO­HAMMED AL EDROOS

“These op­tions should not be there at all for mur­der­ers. It should be death sen­tence only for mur­der.” PAU CHUNG WU

“I can­not get my head round this at all. He beats, tor­tures, starves his wife to death, his chil­dren are dis­abled and must be trau­ma­tised, and they for­give and ac­cepted blood money. This truly sad­dens my heart.”

HE­LENE WAT­SON

“It’s good that they found mercy in their hearts to for­give him though it is cer­tainly not easy. And as for those who are com­plain­ing they would have been the first to call it bar­baric if he had been awarded the death penalty.”
