This is what his daughter Kirsten Piroth says, while she talked to the press. She also stated that Karl is a three-time cancer survivor and at his age, he will not be able to bear the severe punishment which he will be subjected to.

Lemme tell you why Karl was arrested.

He has been working in Saudi Arabia for nearly 25 years as an oil executive but is now being held at Jeddah’s Briman prison. He was arrested at the port city of Jeddah in August 2014 after police allegedly discovered bottles of homemade wine in his car.

The Foreign Office website warns that penalties for possessing alcohol in Saudi Arabia are “severe”. It also warns of Saudi laws against women driving, adultery, homosexuality and drug smuggling – with the latter punishable by death.

The family has been secretly protesting this sentence of 360 lashes and have now sought intervention from the UK Government.

The foreign office said: “Our embassy staff are continuing to assist Mr Andree, including regular visits to check on his welfare, and frequent contact with his lawyer and family. Ministers and senior officials have raised Mr Andree’s case with the Saudi government and we are actively seeking his release as soon as possible.”

Saudi Arabia is widely regarded as having one of the worst human rights records in the world with recent figures showing that at least 175 people had been executed between August 2014-2015, according to the human rights charity Amnesty International.

Those put to death included children under the age of 18 at the time of the offence and disabled people.

So in case you are planning to go to Saudi Arabia anytime, make sure you read their rule book well in advance..!!
