Saudi Authorities Still Haven’t Got the Message Over Prisons Contract

WASHINGTON - The Saudi Arabian Ambassador has today complained that Britain’s cancellation of a bid to provide prison services to the Gulf kingdom was an example of “respect being breached.”

Writing in the Telegraph, Mohammed bin Nawaf bin Abdulaziz criticised “speculation linking the contract’s cancellation to a number of domestic events in the Kingdom,” – apparently a reference to the death sentences handed down to at least two children following anti-government protests, and the sentence of flogging handed to a British citizen.
