The Saudi Arabian Government and Justice System: Prevent the intended paralysis of Ali al-Khawahir from taking place

Ali al-Khawahir stabbed a childhood friend 10 years ago leaving him paralysed from the waist down. He is now 24. A court in Saudi Arabia has ordered that he must pay compensation money to the family of his victim or Saudi Arabian officials will cut his spinal cord and he shall also be paralysed from the waist down.
This disgusting attempt to restore justice is outdated and has no place in the modern day. All efforts must be made to prevent this punishment from going ahead. The crime was committed 10 years ago and for somebody to have to pay a fine or face losing the use of their lower body is unacceptable.
Please sign this petition to prevent this primitive and grotesque punishment from being carried out.

Thank you.
