Criminal turns philanthropist thrills victims families

25 Jul, '08

Stephanie Grady must be really thrilled to know that the person implicated with the death of her husband, together with 57 other poor souls in the biggest sea disaster in Bahrain’s modern times, has not only not served a single day of his 10 year conviction in prison but a few in a health spa hospital due to his failing health, but has now turned to protecting the environment by adding to his burgeoning multi-faceted business ventures yet another enterprise to run vehicles on the much more environmentally and pocket friendly liquid gas. Stephanie should know that this process is actually proven – according to Mr. Al-Kobaisi – to be 2.5 times cheaper than the petrol it replaces, especially that he promises to convert cars to this new process within just 24 hours of receipt of enlightened owners vehicles.

Stephanie should also be over-the-moon to note that Mr. Al-Kobaisi’s lawyer is now in India wrapping up handing out compensations to victims and that her turn should come to the top of the queue very soon now. A fact that should lessen the sadness and grief that the demise of her husband due to Mr. Al-Kobaisi’s gross criminal negligence and allow her at long last to continue on with her young life. It should come as no surprise to me at all should I ever come to know that Ms. Grady, being such a forgiving soul like the rest of decent humanity, is really at peace with the criminal who killed her husband is recovering from “his serious illness” and has now been released in the last few months from his spa hospital bed and is now fully in control of his businesses, as in that realisation, he continues to ensure that hundreds of low wage workers can continue to send alms back to their estranged families a fact that makes their economies run rather smoothly.

So you see Stephanie, your dear husband’s life, may Allah rest his soul with all those others who died on that fateful trip, has not perished needlessly.

    Justice ❗ ❓

  3. Redbelt says:

    What is the point of written laws and written convictions if they are never imposed?

    Oh the sight of that man is nauseating, you could have at least edited out his mug! 😡

    There is something very wrong with our judicial system. How can a convicted man, found guilty of homicide by our very own courts, be living a normal life within society and going about his everyday business? How long has he been enjoying freedom for?

    This will undoubtedly unearth allot of questions and only rubs salt into the open wounds of broken hearts.

    What ever happened to promised top-down legislative and
    judicial reform & accountability?

    mr abdullah al kobaisi is a nice gentleman

    Riffa4u, I couldn’t care less if he was blessed by Mother Teresa! He should be locked up (humanely) serving his reduced 5 year sentence in Jow prison!

    And how can a bunch of kids and rights activists in Bahrain get rounded up from their beds at dawn and get convicted for murder, arson and stealing of weapons and now serve up to 7 years in prison for a crime they didn’t do?

    Country of law and order? law applies to everyone?

    Bahrain… a country with no standards but the whims of a despot on top!

    And why do Bahrainis do not care about their own kin let alone the rest of the world?

  6. Just me says:

    Mahmood, Adel Falaifil, Kubaisi and many others of the same sect and allegiance get off scott free, whilst others, namely the December 17 protestors are serving sentences of up to 7 years in jail for burning a jeep. Is this justice and rule of law? Or is this a system of corrupt and biased judges, politically-motivated sentencing and an unmonitered prison system.

    They will not punish one of their own and we all know that. The only difference in this case was that white people were involved.

  7. Enas says:

    Just me: Your message seems to me to be just as biased as those you condemn.
    “Adel Falaifil, Kubaisi and many others of the same sect and allegiance” So we are all criminals in your eyes I presume??? That’s the type of talk that started sectarian differences in the first place.. You are obviously very clear in your politically driven remark!!!
