PENA MORTE: ARABIA S.; DECAPITATO SAUDITA, UCCISE LA MADRE

RIAD, 29 DIC - Un saudita e' stato decapitato con la sciabola oggi a Taef, nell'ovest dell'Arabia Saudita. Era stato condannato a morte per aver ucciso sua madre e suo fratello. Lo ha reso noto il ministero dell'Interno.

Il giustiziato si chiamava Mohammed S'himi e, in seguito ad una lite familiare, aveva bruciato la casa uccidendo sua madre e suo fratello e ferendo sua sorella.

Con questa decapitazione il numero di esecuzioni rese note dalle autorita' quest'anno sale a 102, mentre finora il record e' del 2007: 153.

Lo stupro, l'omicidio, la negazione della fede islamica, la rapina a mano armata e il traffico di droga sono crimini condannabili con la pena di morte.

Lo scorso 14 ottobre Amnesty International ha protestato contro il governo di Riad, colpevole di ''giustiziare persone a un ritmo di piu' di due alla settimana''

Un Saoudien, condamné pour meurtre, décapité

RYAD, 29 déc 2008  - Un Saoudien, condamné pour le meurtre de sa mère et de son frère, a été décapité au sabre lundi à Taëf, dans l'ouest de l'Arabie saoudite, a annoncé le ministère de l'Intérieur dans un communiqué.

Le supplicié, Mohammed S'himi, a mis le feu, lors d'une dispute, dans la maison familiale, ce qui a entraîné la mort de sa mère et de son frère, tandis que sa soeur a été blessée dans l'incendie, a précisé le ministère dans son communiqué publié par l'agence officielle Spa.

Cette décapitation porte à 102 le nombre d'exécutions annoncées cette année par les autorités saoudiennes.

Un record a été atteint en 2007 avec 153 exécutions, contre 37 en 2006.

Le viol, le meurtre, l'apostasie, le vol à main armée et le trafic de drogue font partie des crimes passibles de la peine capitale dans le royaume ultraconservateur qui applique strictement la charia, ou loi islamique.

Le 14 octobre, l'organisation Amnesty International s'était élevée contre le fait que le gouvernement saoudien continuait "d'exécuter des gens, à un rythme moyen de plus de deux par semaine".
