leave a comment »

Sri Lankan domestic Rizana Nafeek, who is on death row in Saudi Arabia, telephoned her mother who is in Muttur today. Rizana’s mother, Ahamadu Farina, told News that her daughter urged her family to get her released from prison.

She also said that Rizana had said she was saving a warm blanket for her mother and remained hopeful of an early release from prison.

Rizana took the phone call home with the assistance of Doctor Mrs. Kifaiya Ifthikar, who meets Rizana in prison every month.

Rizana was sentenced to death last year but the sentence is yet to be executed after President Mahinda Rajapakse made an appeal to the Saudi government.- Amadoru Amarageeva,
