SYDNEY, N.S. - A 28-year-old Saudi man charged with sexually assaulting a Cape Breton woman has gone missing, with a leading immigration lawyer saying it may be a case of the Middle Eastern kingdom helping a citizen flee while awaiting trial.

Find a random Saudi to do the time and see how that flies.

'ONE OF THE LUCKY ONES': Saudi teen looking forward to new life in Canada

It was a proud moment for Canada when Rahaf Mohammed said, “I am one of the lucky ones. I found a safe country to live in.”
The Saudi Arabian teenager held a press conference Tuesday morning in Toronto to thank all those who helped her flee oppression at home and find her way to safety in Canada.
She also held the conference to ask for relief from an overwhelming media response to her situation — she now wants to get on with the business of learning English and settling into her new home in this country.
Though a translator (Dr. Saba Abbas), Mohammed spoke of gratitude for all the offers of help she has received since her arrival in Canada on Saturday. The young woman left her home Jan. 5 and made it to Bangkok, where she hid out in a hotel room at the airport and used social media to tell the world of her desire to lead a free life. She was eventually granted asylum in Canada.
She said she is looking forward to being independent and to travelling.

“I want to make my own decisions on education, a career, or who and when I should marry. I had no say in any of this,” she said. “Today I can proudly say that I am capable of making all of those decisions.”
Mohammed, who has dropped the surname al-Qunun since being publicly disowned by her family, spoke with strength and courage in front of the media. According to Mario Calla, executive director of COSTI immigrant services, Mohammed is doing fine and has even been to the mall to buy winter clothes and get a phone. She is delighted by the support she has encountered thus far.
As with many immigrants, of course, “the big challenge is the loss of family, friends and culture,” he said. How that will affect Mohammed down the road remains to be seen.
“So far, we have seen no signs of distress,” Calla added.
Social media stands firmly at the centre of Mohammed’s flight to freedom.
It has been a blessing and a curse, with Twitter first attracting international attention to the young Saudi woman’s plight and helping her get to Canada, but now bringing threats to her security. “It’s a bit of minefield,” Calla understated.
Those threats are taken seriously, he added. Mohammed currently has a guard with her. She is never alone and her future living arrangements will likely be with a family, both for the obvious emotional reasons and for personal safety.

Calla praised Mohammed’s strength and spoke of the 60 million refugees on our planet. “Less than a third of 1% get resettled,” he said.
“Every person who has a safe future — it’s a huge victory.”
Mohammed said she will not squander the new opportunity Canada has provided.
“Today and for years to come, I will work in support of freedom for women around the world,” she said. “The same freedom I experienced on the first day I arrived in Canada.”

Yes! If she were ugly she'd be at the back of the line.

Saudi teen: Starbucks, bacon, eggs and bare legs

Rahaf Mohammed, 18, the Saudi teen who was granted asylum in Canada, spoke to the media at the COSTI Corvetti Education Centre in Toronto on Tuesday, January 15, 2019. (Jack Boland/Toronto Sun)
Rahaf Mohammed tasted a slice of her new life in Canada by trying bacon for the first time, downing a Starbucks coffee and showing her bare legs.
The Saudi teen who was fleeing her abusive family was granted asylum last week following a desperate bid to escape the oppressive life that was ahead of her.
Mohammed, 18, claimed she feared for her life.
She tried bacon for the first time! SNAPCHAT
But now, all that’s changed.
The feisty teen took to Snapchat to show vignettes of her new life.
One was a photo of her bacon and egg breakfast — “omg bacon” — festooned with a Canadian flag emoji, the other a cup of Starbucks coffee sitting on her bare legs.
Purchased winter clothes! SNAPCHAT
She also shared a picture of her morning coffee from Starbucks, with her knee-length grey wool dress that shows off her bare legs.
Mohammed arrived in Toronto last weekend and is getting acclimatized to life in the Great White North, buying winter clothes, getting a health card, accommodation and sorting out phone service.
Bared her legs at Starbucks. SNAPCHAT
More ominously, she has a bodyguard following threats to her safety.
Costi Immigrant Services executive director Mario Calla said the courageous teen has received multiple threats online.
“She sees these threats. She has left Islam and she basically has broken away from her family, and that scares her,” Costi said.
Next stop? Learning English.
And tweeted her gratitude. TWITTER

Yup she fears for her life going home , yet here the liberals are splashing her all over the news as if it doesn’t get seen back home . I hate to say it but that one security guard may not be enough . If the Saudi’s can drag people into their embassy in Turkey and torture and kill them , why not here ?
She will shortly fade from the news here as the Liberals and the media move onto their next toy .

Khashoggi entered the consulate (not an embassy) voluntarily (not "dragged into").

Yep, words have meanings. If they don't, then I can truthfully say I f*cked your mother, then dismiss your objections on the grounds that "f*ck" means sexual intercourse and "mother" means the woman who gave birth to you are just "semantics."
