I don't translate bits of news and post them on my blog. However, I felt compelled this morning to do just that after reading this shocking story on Shukumaku.
It made me wonder whether we're living in Syria or in Saudi Arabia and whether our police really have nothing better to do. The only positive aspect I could discern (there is really none but I'm trying to keep what crumbles of optimism I have left in my mental grip) is that the vast majority of the commentators on the original piece of journalistic crap were as stunned as I was.
The Edleb Criminal Security Branch arrested (Fadi-L) and (Rahaf –G) of Aleppo for having sex in a car.
Informed sources indicated to Shukumaku that during a routine security watch a patrol car from the Branch suspected foul play on the Maa'ret Al-No'man - Damascus highway (a KIA Rio parked on the side of the road). Upon field investigation by the members of the patrol they discovered a young man and woman on the back seat of the car in an indecent position. They were arrested during the act of having sex.
After taking both into custody to the Branch Headquarter, Fadi confessed that he is in love with the girl Rahaf (21 years) and that they have a sexual relationship. Later she was examined by the medical examiner and was found to be not virgin since she was married and divorced before.
The arrested man indicated that he often accompanies Rahaf in a car outside Aleppo and that they regularly have sex. This time, however, he "forgot himself" and reached the outskirts of Maa'ret Al-No'man near Edleb.
It was also found that the young man, Fadi, has a police record because he had ran away from the compulsory military service and that the car was rented. Accordingly, their confessions were duly recorded and they will be transformed to the judicial system to receive their fair judgment.
