Thomo’s favourite Ministry has been at it again. Yep, fresh on the heels of all the other recent silliness comes this story from the Arab News, Riyadh Governorate Confirms Probing Complaint Against Commission.
It seems that the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice (or as I prefer to think of them, the Commission for Lasciviousness and Licentiousness) is being probed for the illegal detention of two young men. The Commission alleged that two young men were in possession of alcohol and had been in illicit contact with a 16 year old girl.
The term, “illicit contact” is Commission speak for “spoke to”. That is, these two young men were alleged to have spoken to a 16 year old girl and have a car full of booze.
The Commission men chased these two guys around Riyadh, eventually wrecking the young men’s car. Seems the Commission men (C-Men??) were in unmarked vehicles. When they stopped the young men, they found the car had no 16 year old girl in it and no alcohol either – so they detained the young men for 48 hours, until their father found out about it and had them released.
The reason the young me were driving around? They were on the way to their sister’s wedding.
So, it looks like the C-Men have done it again. Silly. silly, silly!
