Saudi to release condemned psychic

Supporters of a Lebanese TV psychic reader condemned to death by a Saudi court are celebrating the quashing of his sentence.

Once a well-known television fortune-teller across the Arab region, Ali Sibat was detained by the Saudi Arabian authorities while on pilgrimage to the country back in 2008. The practice of fortune telling is illegal in Saudi and, on the grounds of his previous TV appearances, Mr Sibat was found guilty on the charge of sorcery which is punishable by beheading.

Now, however, another of the country's courts has rejected the guilty verdict, claiming there was not enough evidence that Ali Sibat's actions had harmed others. As a result, he is scheduled to be deported back to Lebanon to be reunited with his children and wife, Samira.

Receiving the news of the court's decision, Samira said, ‘Of course I'm very happy. A house without a man is worth nothing. But I am still scared. Unless I see him at Beirut airport with my own eyes I will always be scared for him.’
