    Today’s Sun reports that a sickly 74-year-old grandfather faces 350 lashes in Saudi Arabia for having homemade wine.

    British pensioner faces 360 lashes for being caught with homemade wine in Saudi Arabia http://t.co/xTh7OP25IO

    — BBC News (World) (@BBCWorld)

    The paper broke the news that Karl Andree, who is asthmatic and has had cancer three times, has been in jail for over a year, and that his family are now begging David Cameron to intervene in order to stop the punishment.

    He was arrested on 25 August 2014 because bottles of homemade wine were found in the boot of his car.

    According to the Sun, “[Andree] has lived in Saudi Arabia for the past 25 years, developing and managing locally-owned oil companies. Verity [his wife] was with him until her worsening Alzheimer’s forced her return to Britain for full-time care.”

    His daughter Kirsten Piroth told the BBC that her father “would not survive” the punishment lashes.

    I know a welder who worked there for six months. He made a boatload of cash. He said it really sucked being there. If you mention Saudi Arabia to him he makes the sign of the cross. I think he's kidding but not sure.

    cry me a river. The guy has lived there for 25 years. He knew he was breaking the law and what the risk was. And all for some shitty homemade wine too. What an asshole.

    The Saudis are more like Kate, not Allie.

    "Ally" is the word you're looking for. Ally.

    He may have broken the law but there are stupid laws out there. I'm sure I've broken a few just this morning. Fuck, even BJs are illegal in some states.

    And why didnt he return to England with his wife? At 74 I would think being with family is more important that swigging pruno in SA

    What the Hell do you expect? The Saudi government funded the 9/11 attackers to keep bin Laden and Al-Qaeda off of their back. They're just doing the same thing with this poor ol' Brit. It's just on a much smaller scale. Keeping their home-grown religious crazies happy.
