I guess I shouldn't use names since I might get sued, or go to a place where you guys might have to visit me on a schedule and bring me oranges. But I can certainly put a picture (look).
So this person is a member of parliament. Up until elections, he was never known for being religious. In fact, he owned a 3-star hotel with a disco, bar, and "entertainment-women" and things were all dandy. Just before elections, news got out that he sold the hotel. Fine. I guess you can "find" God and that can always coincide with election time.
Then he gets elected (well, you know, after buying most people in his district air conditioners, fridges, and washing machines etc). He also becomes an Islamist activist and campaigns against hotels & bars because they are un-Islamic. When the Minister of Information issued his order to close-down all entertainment facilities in hotels 4-star and below starting March 1st and ending their alcohol and disco licenses starting May 1st, this MP was of course very happy and was one of FIVE MPs who declared support of us becoming an Islamic country.. al-7imdella.
Except.. oh wait! He is being sued now.. Because guess what, he never sold that 3-star hotel! In fact, he has been renting it through an Indian agent to a Saudi investor who has been managing it (and the disco, and the bar, and the women).. Oh and the rental contract is for the duration of his parliament membership (heeh) for a total of BD500,000. Now of course the Saudi investor is suing him because the new changes in the law (which our Mr. MP is all for) will mean that he will lose his investment.
Final piece of amusement: the MP denied any relations to the hotel in the past, but since money talks, he is now filing a counter-suit to get the rest of the BD500,000 that the Saudi didn't pay (BD 365,500).
I love this.
