A Saudi Arabian appeals court has upheld a sentence of five years in jail and 1,000 lashes for a man who boasted on TV of his sex life, reports say.
Mazen Abdul Jawad was convicted in October of immoral behaviour under the country’s strict Islamic law code.
Sentences of two years in jail and 300 lashes were upheld for three friends of his who were also on the programme.
They appeared on a programme aired last July on the Beirut-based Lebanese Broadcasting Corporation (LBC).
The men can appeal again to a higher court.
