Do you think you could twist that story around just a little bit more? How about she kept HIM in the basement and raped HIM for four years? That would be one step further from what you just said.
She was awarded the money because she wasn't PAID for four years. That is illegal in this country. They kept her passport, which is also illegal. The accusation that she was threatened if she changed her story is from Al-Turki's own nephew, not exactly an unbiased source. You have no idea why she was crying in court; you cannot get inside her head. Maybe she was crying because she finally got justice for four years. Maybe because Al-Turki's relatives screaming so loudly and making a scene was more than she could bear. Until she is interviewed, away from the bullies, we'll never know what was inside her head.
But you are anything but objective in your statements.
