A Saudi Arabian court sentenced Brian O’Connor, an expatriate Christian from India, to 10 months in jail and 300 lashes Wednesday, Oct. 20, accusing him of ”spreading Christianity” and other charges. O’Connor was first arrested on March 25, 2004, by the Muttawa, Saudi Arabia’s religious police. International Christian Concern (ICC) reported that the young Indian native was tortured by police following his arrest. O’Connor’s legs were first chained, and he was hung upside down when the Muttawa came in . . . and kicked him in the chest and rib area” continuously until 2 a.m. ”After enduring months in a Saudi prison, O’Connor was taken to court in late September for a brief, 90-minute hearing,” an ICC spokesperson said. "Charges brought against him included selling alcohol and possession of pornography in addition to spreading Christianity. Executives at his employer declared that the allegations against their employee are a cover-up for the real reason for his arrest [spreading the gospel]."
