- The appellate court is expected to rule today
- The need to avoid the death penalty
- The incident took place in 2017
A native of Kollengode, Palakkad, who was arrested in connection with the murder of a native, has been lodged in a Yemeni jail for a number of years. Although Nimishapriya was sentenced to death in the case, the family approached the Court of Appeal with a petition. Nimishapriya’s lawyer has demanded that she be treated as a woman and that her sentence be commuted on the grounds that she has a six – year – old child and an elderly mother.
Last day, the court asked the lawyer to state if he had anything to say. The trial is set to begin on Friday in the Yemeni capital, Sanaa. If the Court of Appeal approves the death penalty, the case can be referred to the Supreme Judicial Council for consideration. But the panel, chaired by the Yemeni president, will only examine whether the procedures adopted by the appellate court were correct. The decision of the Court of Appeal is rarely overturned by the Supreme Judicial Council. In this case, the verdict is crucial.
