An execution every two days: Saudi Arabia's surge in killings
An arbitrary arrest. No legal representation. A false ‘confession’. A flawed trial. No real right to appeal. And then – a beheading.
In the first six months of 2015, Saudi Arabia executed 102 people – more than in all of 2014. In many cases the death penalty has been used after a deeply-flawed process, with unfair trials and ‘evidence’ gained through torture.
