(Hong Kong, October 12, 2012)

Sri Lankan immigrant maid sentenced to be beheaded in Saudi Arabia. A baby in her care choked to death & Rizana was accused of murder. Rizana was 17 at the time, couldn't speak the language & had an unfair trial...

Save Rizana campaignThe Asian Human Rights Commission is forwarding the attached online petition regarding the possibly imminent execution of Rizana Nafeek.

The petition is organised by Change.org and may be found at: http://www.change.org/en-GB/petitions/stop-the-execution-of-rizana-nafeek-in-saudi-arabia

Rizana has been languishing in jail for several years now, her future uncertain at best. We ask everyone concerned with the fate of this unfortunate Sri Lankan girl to sign the petition. Further information may be found in the Rizana Nafeek dossier.
