Man Caught Committing Adultery, Gets 100 Lashes - Woman Pays The Ultimate Price

In what seems like a miscarriage of justice, a married woman has been sentenced to death by stoning in Saudi Arabia after admitting to adultery, but her male partner in the adultery only received a punishment of 100 lashes.

The 45-year-old Sri Lankan woman had worked as a maid in Riyadh since 2013, and her partner, also from Sri Lanka, were both convicted of adultery earlier this summer.

The two, however, received very different sentences.

The woman was informed by the Sharia court she would be pelted with stones until she died, while her lover only received lashes because he was single at the time.

Sri Lanka has announced it is calling on Saudi Arabia to pardon the female worker.

Upul Deshapriya, a spokesperson for the country's Foreign Employment Bureau, explained to the media that the bureau has hired attorneys to file an appeal.

“She has accepted the crime four times in the courts,” Deshapriya noted. “But the Foreign Employment Bureau has hired lawyers and have appealed against the case. The appeal is going on. Also from the foreign ministry side, they are in negotiation with the Saudi government on a diplomatic level.”

OPEC leader Saudi Arabia follows Islamic law, and has often been criticized by human rights groups for the multiple crimes which carry the death penalty such as adultery, drug smuggling and witchcraft.
