Malaysia delays caning beer woman


news.bbc.co.uk

The caning of a Malaysian woman for drinking beer has been delayed until after Ramadan, officials have said.

Kartika Sari Dewa Shukarno pleaded guilty to the offence under Malaysia's Islamic law and was to have received six strokes of a rattan cane this week.

She will be the first woman in Malaysia to be punished in such a way, but has not appealed against her sentence.

Her sentence has not been overturned, just delayed until after Ramadan. We can't beat her over the Holiday, an official in charge of religious affairs Mohamad Sahfri Abdul Aziz, intervened at the last minute, reportedly for compassionate reasons on the advice of the attorney general. The article also states that anyone who is to be caned must be held in detention, but legal experts pointed out that she had not been given a jail sentence. Let the poor woman go! Beating her for having a Beer is just criminal.
