    Saudi Arabia Man Tries to Sell Son on Facebook for $20 Million

    Posted by Erik Seawright on Jan 11th, 2012



    A man in Saudi Arabia tried to sell his son for $20 million on Facebook. Saud bin Nasser Al Shahry, recently had his illegal debt-collection business shut down and instead of living in poverty, he chose to sell his son to provide for his wife and daughter.

    Saud bin Nasser Al Shahry had tried to apply for the welfare programs in Saudi Arabia but was denied because he was at the cut off age of 35.

    Al Shahry said that he would go to the court if that was necessary to complete the sale on his son, all he wanted to know about the buyer is the city they live in.

    The Saudi Arabia father was trying to sell his son for 73 million UAE Dirhams is committing human trafficking and Saudi Arabia has been designated by the U.S. Department of State as a Tier 2 country when it comes to human trafficking. The country doesn’t comply with minimum international standards with human trafficking and they don’t intend on making the efforts to comply with those standards.

    Slavery in Saudi Arabia ended in 1962 but the human trafficking has been worse and has been dropped from a Tier 2 to a Tier 3 according to the U.S. Department of State. A report from the U.S. Department of State says, “The government continues to lack adequate anti-trafficking laws, and despite evidence of widespread trafficking abuses, did not report any criminal prosecutions, convictions or prison sentences for trafficking crimes committed against foreign domestic workers.”

    It’s not been reported if Facebook will allow this type of sale to go through, but in the Facebook Statement of Rights and Responsibilities it states, “You will not post content or take any action on Facebook that infringes or violates someone else’s rights or otherwise violates the law.”

    So whether this was a mere public stunt or a father that really doesn’t care about his son and would rather have cash, human trafficking is illegal. A Saudi Arabian human rights group, The National Society for Human Rights states that, “Almost half of all Saudi children face domestic violence or some kind of abuse.”
    "Slavery is the daughter of darkness; an ignorant people is the blind instrument of its own destruction; ambition and intrigue take advantage of the credulity and inexperience of men who have no political, economic or civil knowledge. They mistake pure illusion for reality, license for freedom, treason for patriotism, vengeance for justice."-Simón Bolívar

    Surely sanctions and drone attacks are necessary then.

    It is up to par with the organ harvesting going on in Egypt.

    1) Saud bin Nasser Al Shahry (recently had his illegal debt-collection business shut down)
    2) tried to apply for the welfare programs in Saudi Arabia but was denied because he was at the cut off age of 35.

    3,4,5 and up to 18 are essentially the same.

    Surely when his daughters come to age he sells them too. Now he is waiting for the best profit.

    Sick bastard.

    Instead, lets just nuke Iran completely, that kind of show of power works in arab countries, when all political discussion have failed. Unless you want them to develop nuclear missiles able to hit UK or US with India tech?
