Took a while. Though the higher-ups are still comfy on their thrones.
I lose myself infused in something more than what they've seen
I'm not a slave to greed
I don't embrace your make believe
I've never been for sale no matter what they think I need

I question whether anybody will actually suffer more than a brief visit to some nominal custody, and quiet release soon afterwards. It appears that these were loyal foot soldiers carrying out orders. There will be appeals, which can go on for a few years till the regime believes nobody is paying attention any longer. The thing is, it's not like the Saudis are going to stop carrying out this sort of "pour encourager les autres" operation. People given such a task, knowing that they're stepping up for a death sentence, may not carry out their mission as effectively.

you may be right, but alternatively it may be that a real death sentence will be imposed, not for the crime of murder but for the crime of being caught.

what counts against this is that the head of the istanbul mission was acquitted, i think.

Well billy, there is no crime, until you get caught.

Well billy, there is no crime, until you get caught.

Then you just deny it and get a good lawyer.
