Saudi Rape Case Lawyer Gets License Back

JEDDAH, 20 January 2008 — A disciplinary committee at the Justice Ministry in Riyadh yesterday returned the law license of the Saudi lawyer who represented the “Qatif Girl,” the 20-year-old woman who was kidnapped and raped by seven men last year.

Lawyer and human rights activist Abdul Rahman Al-Lahem was returned his license, which was confiscated on Nov. 14 prior to a hearing at Qatif General Court, said Al-Lahem’s lawyer Khaled Al-Mutairi.
