Petition Closed

Raja Al-Hakam has been in prison for two years and is now waiting to be put to death as part of a death sentence for a crime committed in self-defense.

Al-Arabiya has reported that the alleged rapist had a gun, climbed her wall and tried to get in her home from the window.

All people must be able to feel safe. All people must be able to protect themselves from attack by those wishing to do them harm.

Stop this injustice.
