Are you kidding us??
THREE member of Jordan's Paralympic team were charged with sex offenses!
There were just released on bail by a court in Northern Ireland on Wednesday — the sex offenses were at a pre-Games training camp.
Wheelchair-using powerlifters Omar Sami Qaradha and Motaz al-Junadi and coach Faisal Hammash are the accused.
Here's the breakdown:
Hammash: two counts of causing a CHILD to engage in sexual activity.
Qaradha: a silver medallist in Beijing, is charged with three counts of sexual assault, including with CHILDREN, and one of voyeurism.
Junadi: a bronze medallist in Beijing, faces one charge of sexual assault.
They were arrested on Monday night due to claims of indecent assault made by two girls and two women.
The president of the Jordanian Paralympic committee said it was unlikely that the committee would allow the weightlifters to compete in their events.
FOR GOOD REASON.
If this is true, we hope they never get to compete again and are thrown in prison!
