Do not forget that, under Saudi law, she is innocent until found dead.

well that makes everything hunky dory doesn't it.

Oh you were referring to the forced repatriation of a human being.

I thought you liberals were dead against that.

Or is that more FAKE news?

Age of majority is very blurred in a lot of these countries - we all know which ones I’m referring to - places where female children are considered old enough to marry and bear children from around the age of 12, but are not ‘adults’ until 18. And even when they reach that age, they have no more rights than a male relative grants them; allegedly for their own‘protection’.These women, however, are then considered old enough to be murdered for family honour or for challenging their keepers.

Typical straw man argument.

The previous poster was correct in that those words did not come from the BBC and are a wilfully egregious misinterpretation of the BBC's tweet.

Why would anyone fall for this? It only makes sense if you want it to make sense. And, it makes sense the way you like it. Either way, page clicks!

I'm tiring of the duplicity of both the BBC and those who post blindly in that organisation's defence.

Have a read. You may wish to question why this page has been produced in the first place.

The image that was posted contains red words that do not associate with the tweet on show.

The BBC tweet does nothing more than ask the perfectly reasonable question "do you respect the decision she has made?" (My answer - yes)

You would have to suffer from a significant level of mental retardation to twist that into BBC support for Saudi actions. Which reading your post is entirely plausible.

The BBC makes mistakes. All broadcasters do. Arguably the BBC has as at least as many ways for you to complain or correct them as any other.
Your own personal views on the BBC are just as 'blind' as those who support it, and no more valid than theirs.
Fortunately if you find them tiring there is a very simple way for you to avoid them.

The Canadian gov't offered her asylum and discreetly arranged her travel. She is now in Canada.

Is that a tat or a tit for PM Trudeau ?
At least Canada's actions were decisive.

In any event, I wish her well.
Revenue from scandal mags should keep her going for a while.

I would expect that she will need to be given a complete change of identity, and may even transit to another country to avoid being discovered and dealt with. Assassinations in a foreign "neutral" country do happen. She may be free, but it's going to be a long and difficult road to freedom as most of us experience it. I wish her well.

Yes, I would not be surprised at all.
In any event it'll be Canada that takes it on the chin initially.

At least they don't need to worry about their ambassador being expelled.

Usually it's up to a Nation to confer refugee status on a person.
In this case it was the UN (UNHCR) and they asked Canada to accept her after Australia apparently went into a dither.
Canada accepted her with remarkable - "no fooling around" - and arranged for the flights - destination Toronto - (which can be cured).
And there was more going on in Thailand sub-rosa.
So for those Saudis who can't hit barn doors - their target is the UN, if they want one.

(Would have loved to be a fly on the wall when her father and brother, who she says she feared the most, arrived in Bangkok.
Oh the loud, indignant, histrionics in foreign languages that must have gone on..........)

And to think that Saudi chaired an influential panel of the UN Human Rights Council.

The lass had a tourist visa for Australia as that was the only country she could find that permitted a online application.

I wonder what those four have in common?????
If she was a bit smarter she would have aimed for NZ.

Ha ha ha!!...we (Australia) would go into a 'dither' ... for sure we would! .... First thing we would have done was asked the US what to do...they would have said....don't upset the Saudis at any cost.....we're still trying to smooth over the Khashoggi murder....and then hold still until Canada took her...our people in Canberra need to grow up and represent what is right in the World...need to grow a set...pathetic spineless unrepresentative swill are Australian Politicians...from both sides..
