I’ve got a challenge for you – and before you decide to ignore me and go read some other intellectually stimulating blog, just give me a chance… I dare you to try a detox.
If you’ve been keeping an eye on the news recently, you may have heard Amnesty International condemning a Saudi Arabian court ruling that Ali al-Khawahir was to be deliberately paralysed for stabbing his friend in the back 10 years ago, unless he could come up with £180,000 in compensation.
