She will instead be imprisoned, Sri Lankan Deputy Foreign Minister Dr Harsha de Silva announced.

An appeal by Sri Lanka was considered by Saudi Arabia and the execution order was withdrawn, he said.

The woman was convicted in August, along with an unmarried Sri Lankan man.

She was sentenced to death by stoning, while the man was sentenced to 100 lashes.

  1. Where is human rights this time ????????????????????

  2. These people are multi billionaires but their thinking is like those who once
    lived in the stone age. That’s not the first time they’ve done that. They bring in
    maid servants from the Phillipins treat them like slaves, rape them and if they
    make noise, accuse them of all kinds of adultery, etc, etc. Soudies are the most
    backward people in the world. They hate all those who don’t think as them.

  3. I am happy for her, hopefully these barbaric death sentences for non-crimes will soon be abolished.
