    But surely you can't be found guilty of something you did in another country? He didn't do it in Saudi he just visited there.

    There is a precedence for trying people for things they did whilst in another country; and I am not referring to the international courts though they are a case in point. It comes under Extraterritorial Legislation and I think it was set up specifically to combat the 'sex-tourism' where individuals would travel abroad specifically with the intention to sexually abuse children; though bearing in mind that the law depends on interpretation there is reason to suppose that it can be used in other instances.

    However this case of the radio presenter has more to do with the fact that the Saudi religious leaders and their strong arm, the Religious Police, have set themselves up as the final arbiters for what is and what isn't Islamic world-wide.

    I think you're missing the point, there's no such thing as witchcraft! He didn't commit crime anywhere!

    Where did I say it had?

    The biggest flaw in their verdict is the fact the bloke's a charlatan, not a clairvoyant.

    But it doesn't matter what he is, he's not practising anything in that country! They should mind their own bloody business!
