Fifteen Arrested In Saudi Raid, Two Be “Gay”


There’s more anti-gay trouble in Saudi Arabia, where cops nabbed fifteen people for “bootlegging” and “homosexual activities.”

All of them were Filipino, according to reports:

Two Filipino workers were arrested on suspicion of engaging in homosexual prostitution and 13 other Filipinos were detained on charges of liquor trading and consumption in two separate raids here on Saturday.

Roussel R. Reyes, vice consul and third secretary who heads the Assistance to Nationals’ Section at the local Philippine Embassy in Riyadh, confirmed the report of the arrests on the alcohol charge, but not the charges involving homosexuality.

“A consular team of the Philippine Embassy will proceed on an assistance mission and visit the local prisons on Aug. 12 to find out the conditions of our workers, and probably we will know about the accusation of sodomy by that time.”

Prosecutors claim the two homos work the street to make a living.

This is the second time in so many months that authorities have raided and arrested “gay” locales. Fifty-five were arrested last month, including two Filipinos. Meanwhile, an Egyptian man remains in custody for stabbing his flatmate to death in a rage of “sexual panic.”
