A Saudi Arabian man is attempting to sell his own son on Facebook. His asking price is 73 million UAE Dirhams, or around $20 million.
The man in question, Saud bin Nasser Al Shahry, saw his illegal debt-collection business shut down by a local court. He told a Quatari news outlet Al Sharq that the human trafficking was his only option to avoid “living in poverty” along with his wife and daughter.
Al Shahry stated that he would go to the courts if necessary to complete the sale and that, in addition to the $20 million, all he wanted to know about the buyer of his child is the city in which the buyer is located.
