Blogging Tory Luca Manfredi is terribly, terribly upset about children being railroaded into prison:
Canadian sentenced to death in Saudi Arabia after sham trial
The Globe and Mail will report in tomorrow's print edition that a Canadian citizen has been sentenced to death in Saudi Arabia, charged and found guilty of murder. The Liberals are seizing the opportunity to bash the Tories regarding their stance on not pleading for Canadian citizens sentenced in democratic countries through due process and fair trial.
Firstly, Saudi Arabia is a rotten absolute monarchy with a sick joke for a penal code, as well as having a farce of a justice system and being a bankroller, sponsor, breeder and host of international terrorism of the worst sort. Therefore Canada's government should double-check the trial proceedings to see if it was done according to the standards of rule of law...
If the details of how the trial was conducted are indeed as reported the Canadian government has to make all efforts to secure Kohail's release and the family's safe return to Canada. I'm sure they'll never want to see that homeland of theirs even through a binocular.

I'm sorry ... a member of the Blogging Tories expressing concern about child prisoners of corrupt political regimes who are imprisoned through sham trials and denied due process? When did that start?
