Saudi execution

“On 1 June 2016, the Specialized Criminal Court (SCC) in Riyadh sentenced 14 men to death by beheading. They are:

  • Hussein al-Rab’i
  • Abdullah al-Tureif
  • Hussein al-Mosallem
  • Mohamed al-Naser
  • Mustafa al-Darwish
  • Fadel Labbad
  • Sa’id al-Sakafi
  • Salman al-Qureish
  • Mujtaba al-Suweyket
  • Munir al-Adam
  • Abdullah al-Asreeh
  • Ahmad al-Darwish
  • Abdulaziz al-Sahwi
  • Ahmad al-Rab’i

The men were accused of spying for Iran. They endured a grossly unfair mass trial based on ‘confessions’ they told the court were obtained under torture. They were eventually charged with a series of offences including ‘high treason’ with some facing several other charges which are not recognised criminal offences under international law, such as ‘supporting protests’ and ‘spreading the Shi’a faith’.

Crushing dissent

Put simply, they are victims of the Saudi commitment to use the death penalty as a weapon to crush dissent and neutralise political opponents.”

There should be no place in the modern world for the legal execution of anyone, but most particularly in cases such as the above. I find executions extremely disturbing, no one should have the right to take the life of another person for any reason, the fact that there are nations in the modern world that continue to punish people in this way is shocking.

Unfortunately this form of punishment is widespread.

Surprisingly the USA is listed 5th of the countries with the most executions.
