(CNN) — Four Saudi men accused of dancing naked on the roof of a car and posting a video of the incident online have been sentenced to as many as 2,000 lashes and up to 10 years in prison, and fined thousands of dollars, a newspaper reported this week.
A criminal court in Buraidah, Saudi Arabia, handed down the verdict on Wednesday, according to the newspaper al-Sharq.
Three of the men were sentenced to three to seven years in prison and 500 to 1,200 lashes, and one man received the harshest sentence — 10 years and 2,000 lashes.
The fines came to 50,000 Saudi riyals ($13,000), the newspaper reported.
The car they danced on was confiscated, al-Sharq reported, adding that the video of the incident has been removed.
Two of the men were “security men, who were supposed to preserve the security of this country and the values and traditions of Islam,” the newspaper said.

To All the Special Persons I have met in my life journey……………….

JUST TO LET YOU KNOW THAT IT’S CHRISTIAN PERSON WEEK AND YOU SHOULD SEND THIS TO ALL BEAUTIFUL CHRISTIAN PEOPLE.
When I say that ‘I am a Christian’, I am not shouting that I am clean living; 
I’m whispering, ‘I was lost, but now I’m found and forgiven.’

When I say, ‘I am a Christian’, I don’t speak of this with pride; 
I’m confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say ‘I am a Christian’, I’m not trying to be strong; 
I’m professing that I’m weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say ‘I am a Christian’, I’m not bragging of success; 
I’m admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say ‘I am a Christian’, I’m not claiming to be perfect; 
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I’m worth it.

When I say ‘I am a Christian’, I still feel the sting of pain; 
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His Name.

When I say ‘I am a Christian’, I’m not holier than thou, 
I’m just a simple sinner, who received God’s grace somehow.
