SHARJAH — The Sharjah Shariah court has sentenced Andrie Carol, an Estonian soldier of the EU peace keeping force, to one month in jail and 80 lashes followed by deportation for consumption of alcohol and molesting a policewoman at the International airport here.
Andrie had arrived with the peace keeping soldiers from Afghanistan and during the transit period at Sharjah Airport, he had consumed alcohol. The policewoman Mervat filed a complaint against him for sexually harassing her while she was asleep in the ladies police rest room during a break.
Andrie's lawyer said that the court sentenced him to one month imprisonment for alcohol consumption and three months or 80 lashes for harassing the policewoman. He will take the 80 lashes instead of staying in the prison for three months. He has already spent one month in jail, sources noted.

So this implies that if a national rapes 2 yrs are okay. Sharia not so important. Anybody else who hasn't even got the woman naked deserves 80 lashes.
I am not supporting what either one did but i think it just would have been more fair if those nationals got the same 80 lashes.
How do all the arabs or i must say the nationals justify this?
