Proximity crime is dealt with in Malaysia:

A 21-year-old Malaysian university student was yesterday fined RM1,200 for committing the Islamic religious crime of khalwat (close proximity) with one of the imported football stars of the Malaysian Premier League club, Kelantan.

A pharmacy student at the International Islamic University, Ms Farrah Aina Safian Sauri, 21, pleaded guilty to committing the offence with Argentinian footballer Gustavo Alberto Romero at a flat in Kubang Kerian at 1.15am on 7 May. She was charged under Section 9(2) of the Kelantan (state) Syariah Criminal Code at the Kota Baru Lower Syariah Court. The offence carries a maximum fine of RM2,000 or a year in prison.

She paid the fine. Via Asian Football Business Review, which also reports that “the world economy will benefit most from an Italian victory at the 2006 FIFA World Cup.” They’d have no chance if this mighty west Sydney team were involved:
(Incidentally, I’ve been asking the Autorantic Virtual Moonbat if Australia will beat Brazil in our next World Cup match, but it just keeps telling me that “Charles Johnson is a tool of the 700 Club.”)

UPDATE. One of Ghana’s players just celebrated his country’s win over the Czech Republic by waving an Israeli flag.

UPDATE II. Another case of proximity crime—in Idaho.
