Is It Too Late to Save Naffeek Rizana ?

Naffeek Rizana is the 19 year old Sri Lankan woman sentenced to death by beheading in Saudi Arabia (our supposed ally in the infamous "war on terror") for allegedly killing a baby in her care.

A simple review of the case seems to indicate that Rizana is guilty of nothing more than incompetence, and did not kill the child in question.

Amnesty International and several other human rights groups are trying to prevent the death of this young lady.

LINKED HERE is a appeal by the Asian Human Rights Commission that includes a sample letter of appeal as well as email addresses of concerned parties.

Saudi Arabian justice is a warped beast that cannot seem to sepearte it self from Islamic dogma...this year alone over 102 people (many of them not Saudi citizens) have been beheaded...
