Muslim convicted of sex slavery won’t take sex offender course as Islam forbids viewing pictures of scantly clad women

A Saudi national who was convicted of keeping his Indonesian maid as a sex slave has refused to attend a mandatory sex offender’s course, arguing that his Muslim beliefs do not allow him to look at pictures of scantily-clad women.

Homaidan al-Turki, 45, was jailed for 28 years in 2006 after his maid claimed she had been forced to work 12 hour days with no break and then locked in a cellar and abused regularly by the Saudi, who was in the US on an academic scholarship with his wife and five children.

Al-Turki’s sentence was reduced in 2011 to eight years-to-life but his parole applications have been repeatedly denied because of his refusal to attend a sex offenders course.
