Rizana allowed to contact parents

Rizana Nafeek, the Sri Lankan maid in Saudi Arabia, who is sentenced to death by a Saudi court, has been allowed to contact her parents in Sri Lanka, considering this month (August) being the Holy month of Ramadan.

Rizana is currently in jail for the alleged murder of her Saudi employer’s infant, which is an incident, occurred back in 2007. Though Rizana maintains that the baby has choked while bottle-feeding, the Saudi court has given the verdict without a post mortem.

Sri Lankan authorities are now in the process of contacting the relevant Saudi authorities to get Rizana pardoned and released.
