Rizana Nafeek the Sri Lankan worker who was sentenced to death in Saudi Arabia in connection with the death of an infant is likely to be pardoned.

A Sri Lankan dentist employed at a medical centre in Riyadh, Dr. Kipaya Isthikar who had been constantly in touch with Rizana said the Saudi King would meet the child’s father at the end of the Ramazan Festival and look into the possibility of a pardon. (Pix and text by Amadoru  Amarajeewa)

    Dr. Kifaya, for the past 5 years had worked closely with the relevant officials to secure the release of Rizana, She had written several letters to the foreign presidents including then US president Bush. Apart from that she had shown her human qualities by visiting her in the jail around 350 kms from the city center once in every 3 months to show her that she is not all alone. A lot of credit should go to Dr. Kifaya and may God bless her and Rizana.

    Great work Dr. It is a example for the Foreign Employment Bureau(FEB) staff who enjoys a good life in Sri Lanka from the funds send by the poor workers after so much of suffering in ME countries
    ( people work in ME should voice aganist the staff of FEB. Also govt should take setps to recurit at least 10% who has worked in ME in the FEB )

    The fact that the matter has been dragging on for so long does not provide us with much hope. Afterall she was in the same position last Ramadhan. Yet we pray that sanity will prevail and that she returns home.

    Hope for the best.
    The picture shows the reality of the people. As a nation we should stand together and work with the government to stop this poverty which could result stop sending our innocent Sri Lankan girls for this kind of slavery life.
    May God bless all the Girls who are working in Middle East.
