Death By Stoning; The Legal Process

By Mass L. Usuf

Remember the revulsion and disgust with which our society reacted to the gruesome murder of that angel ‘Seya’ last September. Suggestions for the punishment of the accused at that time ranged from decapitation, to killing by torture, to stoning to death like in the Middle East. The rage was all over their faces and the revengeful fury of the public expressed in their loud voices.

Today, we are concerned about the sentence to death by stoning or lapidation of a Sri Lankan woman in Saudi Arabia. The crime, Adultery. Adultery or zina (in Arabic) is sexual intercourse between a man and a woman not married to each other. This can be classified as illegal sexual intercourse between two married persons or two unmarried persons (fornication) or one of them married and the other unmarried. Note the distinction between adultery and fornication. The married person, male or female will face the death penalty if proven.

An allegation leveled at the Sharia law is that the woman is sentenced to death and the man only sentenced to be flogged. This allegation is false as there is a distinction between adultery and fornication. For example in the present case if the woman was unmarried and the man married, then the man would have been awarded the death penalty. It must be stated that the evidential burden, explained below, to sentence a person to death for adultery is extremely high and very, very difficult to prove.

Like fishing in trouble waters, it would be grossly immoral for anyone to subtly capitalise these sensitive moments and sinisterly condemn Islam as having a barbaric penal system, as an archaic religion and so on. Each of these allegations can be rationally, scientifically and convincingly explained but this is not the place and time for this. Our focus now is to save the life of this woman. To do this we need to have an understanding of the law relating to the matter and I hope the thoughts below will be seen by the relevant people.

Perspective

In Islam, adultery is considered a great sin. It further opens the gate for many other social evils. The Kegalle High Court in December 2013 sentenced a woman and a man to death. The woman who had an extra marital affair conspired with her lover and had murdered her husband. The body was dumped in a toilet pit.

We have seen even in Sri Lanka, how it severely affects the family structure leading to quarrels, suspicion, disoriented children and even murder. Finally, the destruction of the family. It impacts on the laws of property, ruins the reputation of both parties, the dignity of the children and facilitates the spread of sexually transmitted diseases. It also dents the moral psychology of the persons.

In this month of December the Police Media Unit reported the killing of a 35-year-old woman and injury to her nine-year-old daughter, after being attacked by a mammoty in Dehiattakandiya. Investigations reveal that an extramarital relationship has been the cause of the murder.

In October this year, dramatic footage aired on television channels (also on YouTube) showed Ramu Chavan, a 60-year-old man walking the streets of the Pune city in India with the severed head of his wife, whom he allegedly beheaded with an axe because of her infidelity. He killed his wife Sonubai because he suspected she was having an affair with her son-in-law.

Law of Evidence

Under the Sharia law, it is almost impossible to satisfy the high level of evidential burden for a person to be found guilty of adultery. Witness evidence is crucial and the character of the witnesses is also significant. Under any other legal system an alcoholic, an adulterer, a convicted rapist etc. can give evidence as a witness. Under the Islamic law for adultery, there needs to be four qualified witnesses. The witnesses have to be pious, honest and truthful people without any blemish. For example, those who do not offer their prayer will not be accepted as a witness in this instance. Moreover, all these four witnesses should have physically seen with their own eyes the act of penetration into the vagina of the woman. Even if the man and woman have been seen lying completely naked on the bed, or hugging each other or kissing the evidence is not sufficient to be sentenced to death by stoning. The implication of this type of witness evidence is that no pious man will ever be present witnessing a situation like this. And, it is not one pious man; it has to be four such pious men.

Quadruple Confessions

There are two ways by which the crime of adultery can be proven one is by leading evidence or by the admission of proof of voluntary confession. The evidential process with regard to witnesses has been described above. In relation to confession, the criminal law procedure has set out the process for it. The confessant must repeat the confession four times at four different occasions and at four different appearances in the presence of the judge. This is to clearly make the accused know and appreciate what he or she is confessing about.

In the case of this Sri Lankan woman, according to reports she had confessed to have committed the crime. When an accused confesses to the crime then it becomes admissible proof. The judge has no option and it becomes legally mandatory on him to find that person guilty and pass the sentence relevant to that offence. What this woman has done is tied the hands of the judicial system and the judge himself. Under hadd law, no judge has the power to increase or diminish the sentence. In crimes of hudud there is no room for intercession or amnesty. Not by the judge, nor the Head of the State not by anyone.

Possible way out

There are provisions for the court to consider certain circumstances in order to suspend, reduce (ta’zir) or defer (for instance, in case of pregnancy) the hudud punishment. The legal chances of her avoiding the death penalty in my view can be based, inter alia on two premises:

Firstly, she can retract her confession. ‘Confession’ in law of criminal evidence is a statement by a suspect in crime that he/she did, in fact, commit the crime. This is an inculpatory form of evidence. Admissibility of this type of evidence as proof is subject to stringent rules. If she had been under duress or coerced into making a confession she can highlight such circumstances. Confession under duress or coercion has no legal effect. In fact, under the hudud laws, this right is given to the accused i.e. the right to retract her confession any time before the sentence is executed. A retraction would nullify her earlier confession as being false. Retraction of a confession does not entail criminal liability. Under hudud law even if circumstantial evidence points otherwise the confession shall be held null and void if it had not been done with freewill. The accused can retract her confession before or depending on the circumstances even during the infliction of the punishment.

Secondly, she can create doubt or uncertainty (Shubhat) on the investigative process. Her lawyers may examine if pre-trial interrogation was done according to the law without harassment, obtention of information without deceit, soliciting of a confession with false promises. Did she have the privilege of being represented by counsel during pre-trial interrogation, at the trial, and at the time of conviction? An individual who lodges a charge of adultery but fails to present four eyewitnesses is subject to the Hudud offense of defamation (Qazhf), punishable by eighty lashes. It is clear that in the present case there are no witnesses. The possibility of the accused being coaxed into admitting guilt or deceived to confess with promises cannot be eliminated. If she can raise these doubts, chances are that they may be given due consideration. All these safeguards in the sharia law are to ensure and doubly ensure that the accused is guilty beyond any doubt before the hadd punishment is administered.

‘Nehe Kiyanne’

Other factors like the language barrier and ineffective translation can be raised; Misrepresentation if any, of the law and legal process; been given misleading direction by the prosecution. Under conditions of uncertainty the judge has the space to move away from the hudud punishment and consider a lesser form of punishment. I can recollect an old incident told to me by a Sri Lankan who was working as a Court translator in a certain country (name withheld). In a case where the charge of adultery was being examined, the judge had questioned the accused woman in Arabic language, “Was there vaginal penetration?” This Translator had translated the judge’s question into Sinhala and then also had told her to say, “Nehe kiyanne” (say no)”. I told him that you have been dishonest. He replied, saying that in the case of Hadd crimes according to juristic opinion is okay. Jurists state to ‘seek a pretext to prevent punishment according to your ability”. This is in case of confession only.

However, if the accused wants to spiritually purify the self from the sin of adultery he/she may confess and go through the punishment. From our Sri Lankan woman’s perspective, she is now publicly known to have committed adultery even if she wants to retract she may not do so because after doing time for the lesser punishment she has to come back to Sri Lanka. She may think of her reputation, her dignity, and her interaction with her husband, children, parents, relations, neighbours. She may feel better off facing the sentence and cleansing herself from the sin she has committed. It is her discretion to retract on the confession or not.

    Brother Mass L Usuf,

    No matter what spin you give to justify how great Sharia law is I am not convinced. God strangely takes a perverted interest in the sexuality of human beings, to suppress and to subvert. Not only in Islam but the gods of almost all other religions too.

    As far as I am concerned when it comes to sexual affairs all human beings are humbugs. They dream and yearn for one thing while professing another. Given half a chance all our Muslim brothers will take the fastest flight to countries where sexuality is liberalised.

      With all due respect, Mr. Mass L. Usuf is at great pains to explain the righteousness of Sharia. A terribly uphill task in this day and age.

      Why are all these religions so obsessed with human sexuality? Why oh why? The greatest gift of nature to mankind is sexuality. Accept it folks. It is OK to be who you are.

      Consensual sex between adults is actually nobody’s damn business.

      Enjoy your sexuality while you can people. You may never have another opportunity to be human again. Ever!

      That is something most hypocritical Arab men have understood. Who are disproportionately frequent clients of sex tourism around the world. Make a visit to Bangkok. You will see.

      Cheers!

      PS:
      All Saudi men disembarking from Bangkok to Riyadh flight should be stoned to death. At once. Upon arrival. At the airport itself.

      World may run out of stones to throw.

          Keynes,

          First of all, I don’t believe in marriage. Therefore got no wife. But only a partner based on mutual respect & love.

          Even, if I had one there is no chance a creep like you ever getting any closer to my hypothetical wife.

          Cheers!

          PS:
          Where is your wife BTW? Is she unenthusiastic, stiff or frigid towards you? Do you take regular showers? Is it possible she feels romantic love or sexual attraction to other females only?

          Do not despair. Some of our Christian fundamentalist friends can cure both her and you.

          However, avoid Islamic fundamentalists. They will seek to stone her to death at once. In a misguided effort to secure their own ascension to heaven. Where they expect nothing less than a private harem of virgins.

          In addition, they might even chop off vital private parts of your own body. After lashing you senseless.

    i)they come in droves to UK and stay in posh and upmarket areas like Kinstbridge,Mayfair and go night clubbing and sleep with white women on a very regular basis and then wear their arabic dresss and go to mosques or pray 6 times a day like damm hypocrites

      95% Saudi women got AIDS from their hubbies
      Dec 2, 2015

      They should stone their husbands.

      http://saudigazette.com.sa/saudi-arabia/95-saudi-women-got-aids-from-their-hubbies/

      Hussain Hazazi

      JEDDAH — About 80 Saudi women were diagnosed with AIDS in 2014, Sanaa Filimban, AIDS program director in the Ministry of Health, has said. “It was a shock to many women. Most of them did not ever leave the Kingdom and 95 percent of the patients contracted the disease from their husbands through sex,” he said.

      The ministry participated in the International AIDS Day, celebrated every year on Dec. 1, by raising awareness of the disease through workshops and lectures.

      Filimban said the ministry has set up 48 centers for AIDs checkups and consultancy in the Kingdom. Out of them, 36 will be stationary and 12 mobile, he said.

      She added that confidentiality of the patients is paramount in AIDs centers.

      “We deal with the women by giving them numbers. We don’t call them nor record their names to protect their privacy. Only their doctor knows their names for administrative reasons,” said Filimban. She added there are 21,761 AIDs patients in the Kingdom.

      “Of them 6,334 are Saudis and 15,427 non-Saudis. In 2014, the program recorded 1,222 new patients. Of them 364 are Saudi men, 80 Saudi women and 778 non-Saudi women,” said Filimban.

      She also said the Kingdom recorded its first AIDs patient in 1984. “Statistics show that 3 percent of the recorded patients are children and the rate of contracting AIDs through breastfeeding from an infected mother is also 3 percent. There is one Saudi woman with AIDs for every four Saudi men with AIDs. Saudi patients aged 15 to 49 constitute 81 percent of the total number,” said Filimban.

      She added only 2 percent of the patients contracted the disease by taking drugs through syringes.

      “AIDs is usually transferred through men and women during unprotected sex. In developing countries where most people have protected sex, homosexual sex is the most common way of contracting the disease,” said Filimban.

      She added there are other ways of contracting the disease mainly by using infected equipment such toothbrushes, razors, tattoo tools. Patients can also contract the disease by going through an organ implant surgery in which the organ implanted was infected with AIDs.

      Meanwhile, Prof. Tawfiq Bin Ahmed Khoja, director general of the Executive Board of GCC Health Ministers, said the rate of HIV cases among GCC citizens ranges between 0.15 and 1.95 for every 100,000 people. “This is the lowest rate in the Arab region,” he pointed out.

      Khoja said the number of HIV cases among GCC citizens increased in recent years as a result of unhealthy lifestyle followed by some groups of people and lack of knowledge about the dangerous impact of the disease.

      “Increasing foreign travel, important social transformations in major cities, rising use of drugs through injection and presence of a large number of expatriates from different countries are other reasons for the growing HIV cases in the GCC,” he added.

      Khoja said health ministries in the member countries have taken a series of measures to contain the contagious disease, including stoppage of blood import, increasing public awareness through the spread of moral and religious values and explaining methods to protect against the virus. “We also provide HIV-positive patients mental and social care,” Khoja said.

    News Item – Foreign Employment Bureau (FEB) had received 199 complaints from Lankan women employed in West Asia that they had been subjected to sexual abuse during the five year period from 2010 to 2014, Foreign Employment Minister Thalatha Athukorale told Parliament yesterday. The FEB had received 91 complaints from Saudi Arabia, 40 from Kuwait, 26 from Jordan, 17 from the UAE, 11 from Qatar, seven from Oman, four from Bahrain and three from Lebanon.

    Why doesn’t Saudi take action against these 91 rapist? That is the big question. Is Sharia law only for poor housemaids. Recently a Saudi Prince in US was accused of rape.

    Mass L. Usuf What are you babbling on about making excuses for these barbaric punishments meted out like a medieval fetish. You could blind us with obscure words from the Koran or elsewhere but the fact remains the stoning to death punishment for the crime of adultery is wildly over the top. A rich country like Saudi Arabia is in a position to help fellow Muslims persecuted in Myanmar, China and even Sri Lanka (pre Sirisena days) and millions of Muslim refugees displaced from their homes in the Middle-East just for belonging to the wrong sect in Islam. But they don’t lift a finger to help.

So for them no sharia rules and also to my knowledge the Saudis do the adultery with the maids too and they are helpless so they do get involved in sexual desire and the men get satisfied so where is sharia law for this men bullshit.Recently a prince caught taking drugs to Lebanon and he should be given death sentence? What happen to this case.Its only for this woman they are trying to stone to death shame shame on Saudi law.Release that woman otherwise no Sri Lankan maids will ever come to Saudi Arabia to work remember that.

          Keynes. I took pains to mention “pre Sirisena days”. Even so these heinous acts were not covered by statute. In Saudi Arabia, according to the laws of today Muslim women cannot drive, cannot leave their house on their own, stoning to death and lashings and amputation of limbs for crimes that will receive a simple custodial sentence or less in Sri Lanka. Muslims in Sri Lanka enjoy their own Marriage and Divorce Laws and more. Sri Lanka may not be a Buddhist country but it is prominently Buddhist just like Saudi Arabia is Muslim. You can take your tin-pot philosophy to blind the brainwashed morons but most Sri Lankans are made of better stock. By the way, I am neither a Buddhist nor a Moslem, but an Atheist.

            Sylvia,

            Despite the valiant attempts by Barack Obama and David Cameron to insist that the lawless violence of Isis has nothing to do with Islam, many will disagree. They may also feel exasperated. In the west, we learned from bitter experience that the fanatical bigotry which religion seems always to unleash can only be contained by the creation of a liberal state that separates politics and religion. Never again, we believed, would these intolerant passions be allowed to intrude on political life. But why, oh why, have Muslims found it impossible to arrive at this logical solution to their current problems? Why do they cling with perverse obstinacy to the obviously bad idea of theocracy? Why, in short, have they been unable to enter the modern world? The answer must surely lie in their primitive and atavistic religion.

            Does this strike a chord with you?

    all these non-muslim writers have no clue about Shriah laws. I blame not them but Saudis who apply these laws to modern conditions. To apply Islamic law you need to create equal and just community? Does Saudi has got that… No. they treat these ladies as slaves. First of all she can not leave her house to work in Saudi.. It is illegal in Sharia law.
    Secondly, Saudi does not apply Shariah law rather Saudi land law or tribal law.. nothing to do with Shariah…
    All victims of rape do not get justice… How many have been raped by Arab bosses… How many can of alcohol is sold in Saudi?
    How did monarch got its rule …illegal way with British support. These dictators robe the wealth of nations.. They should be sentenced to death for stealing public money by Billions.. How do they feed 500 princess with public money. Is it Shraih to do so…
    Please do not shariah in Saudi… it is a worst form of tribale law..
    Sharia is all about justice… Equality… mercy .. kindness.. without these no Shariah.. Punishment is part of it … but it need some just and equal society to implement
