Saudi government helps Muslim accused of sexual assault in Canada elude prosecution


Robert Spencer

It is likely that what Mohammed Zuraibi Alzoabi is accused of doing is not a crime in Saudi Arabia. After all, one survivor of a Muslim rape gang in the UK said that her rapists would quote Quran to her, and believed their actions justified by Islam. The Qur’an teaches that Infidel women can be lawfully taken for sexual use (cf. its allowance for a man to take “captives of the right hand,” 4:3, 4:24, 23:1-6, 33:50, 70:30). The Qur’an says: “O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.” (33:59) The implication there is that if women do not cover themselves adequately with their outer garments, they may be abused, and that such abuse would be justified.

See also how he characterizes as a “hater” someone who repeated the charges against him. This is akin to the label of “hater” being applied to those who oppose jihad terror and Sharia oppression.

Note also Alzoabi’s imperiousness. He knows that he is one of the “best of people” (Qur’an 3:110, referring to Muslims) sojourning among “the most vile of created beings” (Qur’an 98:6, referring to non-Muslims), and certain that women exist to serve men (men are “superior” to women according to Qur’an 4:34): “First time I met him consisted of him coming in my office and snapping his fingers because I didn’t greet him quick enough as I was busy.”

“Saudi man accused of sexual assault in Sydney, but location remains a mystery,” by Aaron Beswick, Chronicle Herald, January 11, 2019:

Where is Mohammed Zuraibi Alzoabi?

It’s a question that plagues his alleged victims, who expected the 28-year-old Saudi Arabian man to face charges of sexual assault, assault, forcible confinement, uttering threats, criminal harassment, dangerous driving and assault with a weapon (a vehicle) in separate trials related to two incidents that occurred in Sydney between 2016 and 2017.

The Cape Breton Regional Police confirmed to The Chronicle Herald on Wednesday that they have the passport he was forced to turn over as part of his bail.

“It should be impossible (for him to leave the country or enter another without a passport) unless Saudi Arabia furnished him with a Saudi travel document,” said Halifax-based immigration attorney Lee Cohen.

“They have done this before.”
Accused says “unfair” accusations based on race

According to the Crown the $37,500 in bail, posted in cash, that was forfeited at a hearing on Monday was provided by the Saudi Arabian embassy. The remaining $5,000 worth of bail was in the form of a 2008 Nissan Altima that Alzoabi had put up as a surety but that the Crown wasn’t able to seize.

“That is unusual,” said Cohen of the large cash bail posted by the embassy.

The Saudi Arabian Embassy did not respond to a request for comment.

And Alzoabi won’t say where he is….

Alzoabi said he won’t come back to Cape Breton to face the charges because he thinks they are “unfair.”

“I can’t respect that,” said Alzoabi of the warrant and the charges.

“Everybody’s against me just because I’m a (racial expletive) and foreign student despite the fact that we boosted so much money to that island of Canada.”…

While Alzoabi said he “still loves Canadians,” that sentiment is not necessarily shared mutually in the Sydney area.

“He was rude, obnoxious and thought he was above women and the rules,” said Jessica Hines, manager of Kevin’s Towing in Sydney.

“He hated me more than anyone, I think.”

Hines and Alzoabi got off to a rocky start.

“First time I met him consisted of him coming in my office and snapping his fingers because I didn’t greet him quick enough as I was busy,” Hines said.

“I immediately marked my dominance by telling him ‘I don’t jump for men when they snap their fingers at me,’ and made him sit and wait for near an hour.”

Mohammed Zuraibi Alzoabi is the subject of a warrant so he can face charges of sexual assault, assault, forcible confinement, uttering threats, criminal harassment, dangerous driving and assault with a weapon. His former lawyer says he left the country, something a local immigration attorney says would be impossible without help from the Saudi embassy.

Alzoabi became a regular visitor to Hines’ office as she continued to tow his vehicles.

Between March 2012 and April 2016 Alzoabi racked up 34 motor vehicle infractions for speeding, driving with an invalid licence and for driving uninsured, unregistered and uninspected vehicles.

The still unpaid fines tally out at $68,967.30.

“The fines just kept getting bigger,” said Alzoabi.

“… I think I bought five or six cars. They were all cheap cars. The most expensive was probably a thousand bucks.”

Hines said it was more like 10 cars, but agreed that they were all “beaters” and all have now been crushed for scrap metal.

“I was just trying to keep my life going,” said Alzoabi, who lived on Fairhaven Drive in Westmount at the time of most of the vehicle offences.
Former counsel says Alzoabi fled country

While repeatedly running afoul of the law he continued to study at Cape Breton University and just months after the two sets of criminal charges were laid, he graduated in May 2017.

An administrator of a Daily News Facebook group who shared the stories on the charges being laid received the following message from Alzoabi.

“(You are) a piece of shit hater, wish u die in cancer very soon for the hate ur passing around …I’ll spend the rest of my life fighting ppl like u I promise u,” reads the message from which The Chronicle Herald has redacted portions due to racist speech.

From here the timeline of Alzoabi’s presence in Canada becomes unclear.

The Crown admits they don’t know where he is, where he fled or if he is out of the country.

Prosecutor Peter Harrison said their basis for believing he left Canada is based upon a Sheriff’s department document called an affidavit of attempted service.

In explaining why a warrant couldn’t be served on Alzoabi on Dec. 8, 2018, that document states “Spoke to counsel, Mr Ianetti, stated he fled the country sometime ago. Media reports also indicate he had left the country.”

North Sydney lawyer David Ianetti represented Alzoabi until being granted permission by the court to end his service in November 2017. He did not return repeated requests for information on how he knows Alzoabi is out of the country….

Asked what he plans for the future, Alzoabi said, “I don’t know, maybe Saudi Arabia.”
