A 42 year old Saudi man has been in prison for 14 years after attacking his mother-in-law, and his father wanted him to stay in jail!
A court in the western town of Madina had sentenced the man to 3 years in prison and 200 lashes for beating up his wife's mother while drunk.
He was also ordered to pay SR26,000 to his father after setting his car ablaze.
"When he completed his jail term and was about to be released, his father went again to the judge and pleaded that his son remains in jail so he will not attack his wife's mother again," Kabar newspaper said.
"he judge then decided to keep the man in prison until his father decides that he is corrected…ever since, he has been there indefinitely."
