More Sharia Law - Stonings of Women Ordered in the Sudan

And more Islamic justice, this one not from Germany, but from the Sudan, where the Islamic government imposes Sharia law upon all. In this particular instance, two women, non-Arabs, non-Arabic speaking, not provided with an interpreter, and not represented by a lawyer, where sentenced to death by stoning following a trial conducted in Arabic by a Sharia Court for the crime of adultery. If that were not appalling enough, in one of the cases, the male also accused of adultery was released for lack of evidence. Read the story from Gulf news here.
