Sexagenarian sorcerer

Somehow, the Khaleej Times' bizarre, ill-written English adds to the exquisite absurdity of this story:

FUJAIRAH — A sexagenarian Iranian sorcerer, who was also hooked to hash, is now cooling his heels in prison following a five-year jail term slapped on him by the Fujairah Criminal Court.


Police received a tip-off that the Iranian was conducting his ‘business’ claiming that he had supernatural powers. The indictment sheet states that Samjan practised sorcery and black magic to convince his preys.

Probably something that will get this journal filtered out by the proxy!

Someone in their sixties, apparently.

Odd - only 5 years for magic and hash. Perhaps the voodoo he do so well.

Got a mirror, got an off-line back-up ;)

But hopefully I can stay on the good side of the censors...
