A Saudi woman was beheaded after being convicted of practicing “witchcraft and sorcery,” according to the Saudi Interior Ministry, at least the second such execution for sorcery this year.
The woman, Amina bint Abdulhalim Nassar, was executed in the northern Saudi province of al-Jawf on Monday 12/12.
A source close to the Saudi religious police told Arab newspaper al Hayat that authorities who searched Nassar’s home found a book about witchcraft, 35 veils and glass bottles full of “an unknown liquid used for sorcery” among her possessions.
According to reports, authorities said Nassar claimed to be a healer and would sell a veil and three bottles for 1500 riyals, or about $400.
According to the ministry, Nassar’s death sentence was upheld by an appeals court and the Saudi Supreme Judicial Council.
Philip Luther, the interim direct of Amnesty International’s Middle East and North Africa program, condemned Nassar’s killing, calling it “deeply shocking.”
“The charges of ‘witchcraft and sorcery’ are not defined as crimes in Saudi Arabia and to use them to subject someone to the cruel and extreme penalty of execution is truly appalling,” Luther said.
Luther said that a charge of sorcery is often used by the Saudi government as a smokescreen under which they punish people for exercising freedom of speech.
Nassar was not the first person to be executed for alleged witchcraft by the Saudi government this year. In September, a Sudanese man was publicly decapitated with a sword in the city of Medina after he was found guilty of the same crime.
According to Amnesty International, at least 79 people have been executed in Saudi Arabia so far in 2011, more than three times as many as in 2010.
The human rights group
condemned the kingdom’s
reliance on capital punishment.

    If we had implemented such laws and ounishment here in Zambia, alot of people wouldnt have been involved in illicit acts, or criminal acts.
    no mercy for people who dont have mercy on others

    A traditional healer brutally killed like that? Some countries awe sure. Sad indeed. This world is full of tyrants deserving unspeakable deaths but go scot-free up to their graves. THIS IS PURE TRAVESTY OF JUSTICE

    Nevers Mumba is a money laundering machine.

    He abuses tax payers money and fires anyone who gets in his way. He and Mr Nzoya (the deputy at the high commission here in Ottawa) have been stealing money to buy luxury cars for them selves in Ottawa;they travel around the globe for personal reasons then finance them through the mission.

    They fired Mr Tembo because he was against this and sent him back to Zambia. they also have an office slut ( carolina rodriguez ) working for them and she abuses the Zambian mission’s money by offering her physical body to diplomats.

    this is such a shame; abusing hard earned tax payers money

    thats the difference between christian nation and muslim nation basically. when constituting technical committee to make constitution, muslims cried foul saying they were left out…let them know that the incident such as this one in saudi arabia is the reason we dont need their input coz we fall on opposite ends of the spectrum. what they consider justice to us its injustice so can never agree. beheading a person for witchcraft thats too harsh for God’s sake but i dont support sorcery or superstition. Zed christian nation weather they like it or not!!!!!!!!
