DEATH PENALTY | Convicted for robbery Saudi Arabia postpones seven executions to irregularities in the trial


Crucified for three days said humanitarian organizations. Hanged and his body inert (and still hang) publicly exposed for one day, claimed journalistic sources in Saudi Arabia ElMUNDO.es. Be the way it was, this was the end that awaited today Mashayeh al-Sarhan , chief of a band of thieves in Saudi Arabia organized robberies in several jewelry stores between 2004 and 2005. His death would have served as an example for the population , if the opposing voices within and outside the country had not managed to postpone at the last moment , as reported by Reuters citing the family of the incarcerated. Be postponed until the Royal Court review the case. Now we study whether to reopen the case following allegations of irregularities in the trial and the international mobilization. The lives of six of his buddies also was at stake (and remains). They would have been shot if today had been fulfilled the order signed by King Abdullah. And that's the lesson widespread in Saudi Arabia for those who dare steal wielding weapons. Sharia, Islamic law governing the country, and judges so determine. In the desert kingdom those who commit crimes with theft, rape, kill or traffic in arms will be sentenced to death, beheaded with a sword, hanged, shot ...But in the end, pressure from international human rights organizations and, within the realm of social media has emerged effect and has to postpone the execution There were too many allegations of negligence at trial to go ahead and not only that, he was also involved violation of the rights of minors. Two of those convicted were under 18 years old in 2006 when they were arrested and the rest did not exceed 20 years .So Eric Goldstein , Deputy Director in the Middle East director at Human Rights Watch (HRW) warned that it would be "a scandal if the Saudi authorities continue with the execution" and encouraged the authorities to "end the ejeciones of young offenders and start following the obligations of international human rights laws. " In addition, irregularities in the case was overwhelming. Moreover after that came to light an interview with AP with one of the convicted, Nasser al-Qahtani , in just 24 years. "I did not kill anybody," he said yesterday from his prison in Saudi Arabia through a mobile. "I had no weapons while stealing," he continued. And surprise them with a "They beat me and threatened to assault my mother unless he confessed he had a gun" (as the legislative practice in the Kingdom would not be put to death by not carrying a gun). "Judge not heard us" and "did not have lawyers," added Young. Amnesty International was quick to qualify the judgment of "brilliantly unfair" and HRW claimed today that "violates the basic principles of a fair trial." Also have been doing all day the Saudis in social media as blogger and journalist ensures Eeman Alnafjan to say that "the trial was in 2004 and there was not much media coverage then, but now we are all behind him happens." The truth is that the actual signature was on the sentence , but I must say that the monarch has always tried to introduce reforms in the judicial system , trying to standardize rules and the judges give their verdicts clearer. That may be a plus in this case, but you can not forget that there is always pressure from obstructive true change in this country: the religious authorities.
