Saudi Arabia’s 175 “mass judicial executions” in 1 yr condemned by Amnesty

Amnesty International has slammed Saudi Arabia in a report for its flagrant use of the death penalty, which has seen 175 people executed in the space of 12 months, while adding that a number of crimes did not warrant the use of capital punishment.

The report entitled ‘Killing in the Name of Justice: The Death Penalty in Saudi Arabia’ stated that between August 2014 and June 2015, at least 175 people had been put to death – an average of one person every two days.
