Urgent Appeal – Saudi Arabia : Stop Stoning Sri Lankan Domestic Worker

Why this is important

A 45 year old, unnamed Sri Lankan migrant domestic worker and mother of 3 has been sentenced to death by stoning in Saudi Arabia for “adultery.” Zina - that is any sexual relations outside of marriage - are Hudud crimes or “crimes against God.”

The man in the alleged relationship who is single has been sentenced to 100 lashes for “fornication.”

The Muslim Women’s Research & Action Front Sri Lanka says that the stoning is imminent and to take place on Friday 4 December 2015.

We, the undersigned, condemn the death penalty and stoning or flogging, including for private sexual relations between consenting adults.

The state must not kill people for love.

The Saudi authorities must release the two and extradite them to their home country.
