Time is running out for an Indonesian woman, in Saudi Arabia, who could be executed for the murder of her employer as early as 3 April.
41-year-old Satinah Binti Jumadi Ahmad confessed to striking and killing her employer, Nura al-Garib, in self-defence, after the woman attempted to smash her head against a wall.
Nura al-Garib’s family has requested diya (compensation or ‘blood money’) of 7 million riyals (AUD$2 million) in exchange for sparing Satinah Ahmad’s life.
MYTH: Supporting asylum seekers means supporting people smuggling.
People smugglers may be breaking the law, but asylum seekers are not. It is inhumane and against the law to punish asylum seekers escaping war and terror in order to send a message to people smugglers. To stop people smuggling, we need to stop the reasons that people flee their countries – violence, terror and persecution.
Let’s reject the myths and think again about asylum seekers and refugees > http://ow.ly/sRa0x
