It’s a good thing Cupid does not live in current-day Saudi Arabia. If he did, he would be tried and convicted to be executed for acts of “sorcery” just like Abdul Hamid Bin Hussain Bin Moustafa al-Fakki.
Mr. Abdul Hamid al-Fakki’s actions were nothing more than those akin to fortune tellers in the U.S. If he has committed any crime, it would be setting up a scheme to take advantage of his clients’ hopes of bringing former lovers back together. After all, $1,600 USD is quite a bit of money just to write some code on a few pieces of paper. However, he should not have been beaten while in custody and certainly should not be executed for “sorcery.”
The question of his trial is in limbo as it was held in secret, so there’s doubt if he even received a fair trial. There is also the question of his being entrapped.
There are so many issues with this case that an investigation into its legality should be opened and his execution should be halted immediately.
