We are outraged to hear that Islamic cleric sheikh Fayhan Al Ghamdi has been absolved and made to pay blood money for the unspeakable torture, rape and murder of his five year old daughter Lama. We demand justice for Lama and an end to the national laws that protect murderers rather than children. #AnaLama
Daily Mail-: Lama al-Ghamdi died in October having suffered multiple injuries including a crushed skull, broken ribs and left arm, extensive bruising and burns. The child was also repeatedly raped and burnt.
The Commentator: Lama al-Ghamdi was the daughter of Fayhan al-Ghamdi, an Islamic preacher who makes regular appearances on television. Under Saudi law, al-Ghamdi has had to pay only £31,500 in 'blood money', even after confessing to the heinous crime.
