Comments on Maldivian Criminal Law changes

Reader comment on item: [Paul H. Robinson:] U Penn Prof for Shari'a

Dr. Pipes,
I usually agree with your viewpoint but this time I must take exception and agree with the position taken by the professor. It may seem simplistic but I believe the argument that the Maldives are aware of the kind of assistance they will be receiving from the esteemed professor. Let's give the development of a new criminal code a chance and see how much the professor can accomplish.
