Saudi Agrees To Fresh Trial for Condemned Sri Lankan Woman: Harsha De Silva


Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) agreed to a fresh trial for the Sri Lankan woman who was condemned to death by stoning for adultery, Deputy Foreign Minister Harsha de Silva told Parliament a short while ago.

It was reported yesterday that her death sentence was put on hold following an appeal by the Sri Lankan government.
