Canadian Court Expels Saudi Man for Assaulting His Daughter


A court in the Canadian province of Newfoundland this week ordered the expulsion of a Saudi Arabian citizen who was convicted of assaulting his daughter and threatening to kill her, Shalom Toronto reports.

According to the report, the incident began at a restaurant and then continued at the family home. The 30-year-old daughter asked her father’s permission to marry her fiancé, a Canadian man who converted to Islam. The father, 56-year-old Khalaf Alshaek, reacted by snapping at his daughter and threatening to kill her.
