I…I…I…I have no words for this right here.
A Saudi millionaire has been cleared of raping a teenager after claiming he might have accidentally penetrated the 18-year-old when he tripped and fell on her.
Property developer Ehsan Abdulaziz, 46, was accused of forcing himself on the teenager as she slept off a night of drinking on the sofa of his Maida Vale flat.
He had already had sex with her 24-year-old friend and said he might have slipped over on top of the younger woman.
The jury acquitted Abdulaziz, of Maida Vale, of one count of rape after just 30 minutes of deliberations.
In his evidence, Abdulaziz demonstrated how the complainant had put her hand behind his head to pull her towards him, causing him to fall down.
“I’m fragile,” he said. “I fell down but nothing ever happened, between me and this girl nothing ever happened.”
He said it was possible he had semen on his hands after the sexual encounter with her friend.
Well, I suppose a sham trial like this is exactly what we should expect in a place like Saudi…wait, what’s that? the Southwark Crown Court is located in England? Jesus Christ!
What a proud day this must be for the British justice system. Actually make that British system, because any sense of justice was clearly absent that day.
