UPDATE 10 April 2014: News reports from 4 April indicate positive movement in the case of Satinah. We are still waiting for formal confirmation from the Saudi Arabian authorities that Satinah will be taken off death row. Until this happens, we are continuing with our vigilant campaigning and ask you to join us.

Time is running out for an Indonesian woman, in Saudi Arabia, who could be executed for the murder of her employer as early as 3 April.

41-year-old Satinah Binti Jumadi Ahmad confessed to striking and killing her employer, Nura al-Garib, in self-defence, after the woman attempted to smash her head against a wall.

Nura al-Garib’s family has requested diya (compensation or ‘blood money’) of 7 million riyals (AUD$2 million) in exchange for sparing Satinah Ahmad’s life.
