Fawza Falih Muhammad Ali has been sentenced to death by having her head cut off because a man accused her of making him impotent. Arrested in May, 2004 Fawza was held for 35 days in which she beaten to the point of having to receive medical care after one of the beatings.
Denied access to her lawyer, a confession was extracted which Fawza had to sign by thumbprint because she’s illiterate.
Her conviction was overturned by an appeals court, but another court has since decided to sentence her to death anyway for the “good of society”.
If you recall, Saudi has been in the news two other times recently for it’s crimes against women. The first time was when a rape victim was sentenced to a beating. The second happened quite recently when the Saudi religious police made a woman strip for meeting a man in the family section (women are segregated by law in Saudi society) of a Starbucks.
