Beyond Injustice: Saudi Beheading of Sri Lankan Maid

Execution of Rizana Nafeek in Saudi ArabiaSafe World StatementFor over two years we have been working to save Rizana, in the firm belief that justice would be done.But justice was not done.In 2005, a teenage girl left her home and impoverished family in Sri Lanka. to find work – but, eight years later, she was murdered by the government of the country she went to.Her execution was a betrayal of any UN conventions: Rizana Nafeek was 17 at the time of the alleged offence. Her execution was illegal under international law because she was a juvenile. Rizana’s trial was a miscarriage of justice. There was a possible forced confession and no autopsy of the victim to determine cause of death. As a young immigrant worker, Rizana was herself a victim. Those responsible for arranging her employment have been imprisoned following an investigation into human trafficking.We utterly condemn the Saudi Arabian government for this action and at the same time offer our deepfelt condolences to the family of Rizana Nafeek on the loss of their daughterThere must be no more Rizana Nafeeks – her death must not be in vain.
