- Ali Mohammed al-Nimr,
sentenced to be crucified, was accused of participating in banned
protests and firearms offenses -- despite a complete lack of evidence on
the latter charge, and he was denied access to lawyers. Al-Nimr is also
alleged by human rights groups to have been tortured and then forced
into signing a confession while in custody.
- Not only are the Saudi authorities preparing to crucify someone
-- in 2015 -- whom they tortured into making a confession; they are
preparing to crucify someone who was a minor at the time of arrest.
- Alas not a week goes by without Saudi Arabia demonstrating to the
world why they retain their reputation as one of the world's foremost
human rights sewers.
- Crucifixion is a punishment which, it would appear, is not only Sharia-compliant but also -- we must assume -- Geneva-compliant.
