The clemency request sent to the Saudi Arabian Government by President Mahinda Rajapaksa regarding Lankan maid Rizana Nafeek is going through the formalities in Saudi Arabia and we are awaiting a reply, External Affairs sources told Daily Mirror online.
The clemency request was sent after Sri Lankan maid Rizana Nafeek was Indicted and found guilty of alleged death of an infant in 2005. The verdict was later endorsed by the Supreme Court in Riyadh and a death sentence was given. (GS) (Daily Mirror online)

It is the time to think, why are we still sending the vulnerable sisters and mothers to the tigers den, Either to become sex slaves or just slaves or punching bags of the frustrated women in these ME countries. It is lot of foreign exchange that we are going to miss, worse than the GSP! but will have our dignity. Its Time take decissions, not just the fate of one victim

What's wrong with u....n the other guys, I think u all have messed up everything. We are talking about Rizana... not about SF. We all should pray for the young girl. Oh God have mercy

Never did and never will understand how loss of a life can be justified with another loss of life. Its "lawfull" murder!!

The agent who sent this underage girl to Saudi under false documents should be hanged.

TDDC Monday, 01 November 2010 11:13 AM
What about if the King of KSA appeal to release SF from the President of SL?
lankaputha Monday, 01 November 2010 08:34 AM
May her get the clemency, but please don't use this incident as a well to have a good shower of credits. We hate it.
malkanthi Monday, 01 November 2010 10:18 AM
First of all clemency request was not initiated by H.E. or any government minister, but Ranjan Ramanayake as stated by him. The man really feels for the helpless.
Fayad Monday, 01 November 2010 10:16 AM
We have to unite as a single force & request for clemency this poor girl rather than trying to split hair
silva Monday, 01 November 2010 09:55 AM
Why can't hr pardon SF for a trial then see it is going to work for Saudi maid
Ravi Monday, 01 November 2010 09:41 AM
First of all she was underage girl anyway,no experince of looking after infant,specially when feeding bottle,it must be cot death most cases,if its inquiry ,the agent,and how she managed to get the paaport,its shows how any terrorist can obtain a valid official document.when she was passing through the immigration at BIA ,the whole lot of depts are corrupt and inefficiancies,there are lack of baby sitters back home
Vimal Monday, 01 November 2010 09:41 AM
its not about her killing the child, its the parents fault mister, these ppl treat the maids from SL like slaves.. they raise children with no love or care.. no wonder these ppl hate any other person from another religion...
kd Monday, 01 November 2010 09:38 AM
"PRAYER" for the right purpose with right intention is stronger than any other thing......PRAY, pray with correct spririt for her release
jag Monday, 01 November 2010 09:13 AM

wasala Monday, 01 November 2010 09:12 AM

Rajah, KSa Monday, 01 November 2010 09:02 AM
I think the Honarable King of Saudi Arabia is give parden to Rizana Nafeek
RNB 72 Monday, 01 November 2010 08:46 AM
Lets hope & pray she is out of death sentence. At the end we are talking about a life.
Dilan Monday, 01 November 2010 08:45 AM
How about pardoning SF for a change.
Fair n Squareare Monday, 01 November 2010 08:40 AM
Hope someone has what it takes to request the King of Saudi Arabia to request for freedom to a war hero and it is NONE other than Sarath Fonseka. Well we also could consider a swap, release Mr. Sarath Fonseka and we will pardon and release Rizana
for my name sake
Aro Monday, 01 November 2010 08:38 AM
I think what the SL gov and all other external parties doing to get this person back to SL is indeed great. However there needs to be an impartial inquiry as to whether she actually killed this child or not .. if found guilty she needs face the consequences, I hope some one does carry out the relevant investigations
