Cyber muttawa
 
There is apparently a problem in Saudi with women being blackmailed by blokes threatening to post pictures of their faces on the internet. That's a pretty sh*tty threat in most countries but in the veiled landscape of Saudi this is a real enough issue..

Logical solution: Stop the forced veiling of women and the blackmailing ceases to be a problem

Saudi solution: Create a section of the muttawa's dedicated to cyber crime....

What about all the Saudi Arabian women you see walking around the shops in big cities while on holiday? Is it a case of what happens on tour stays on tour?

Very weird :blink:.

that's probably a bowdlerised version of events.

It's not really their face they threaten to post online.
