Woman complains against the Ha’ia

AL-QUNFUDA – A woman has approached the Emir’s Office in the Makkah Region demanding an investigation into an incident where her daughter and son were stopped and questioned by staff members of the Commission for Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice (Hai’a) here. She said she wants compensation after the girl’s reputation “was tarnished in public.” The head of the Hai’a here, Ahmad Bin Muhammad Al-Shamrani, said he did not have any information about the complaint against the anti-vice body. The girl, a university student, said she entered a pharmacy in the company of her brother when the agents came inside the store and accused her of getting out of the car of an expatriate. “They searched my stuff then asked me to get in their car, but my brother refused,” she said. She added that she and her brother had to sign a paper produced by the Hai’a staff with her name and her brother’s on it, as people had started to gather and they were afraid of a scandal. – Okaz/SG
