RIYADH – Saudi Arabian government beheaded its first criminal of 2015 in the charge of drug smuggling in eastern Province’s city Al-Hasa, PakistanTribe received international media reports.
International media sources told that Malik bin Said al-Sayaari a saudi citizen was beheaded on Thursday in the Al-Hasa district of Eastern Province as he was repeatedly involved in drug traficking even after the warnings.
Saudi government has imposed the death penalty punishment on the crimes like Rape, murder, apostasy and armed robbery as well as drug trafficking.
It is pertinent to mention here that a Pakistani named Sadaruddin Sayeed-ullah Sayyad was beheaded in crime of smuggling the drugs on Wednesday.
Interior ministry said that Sayyad was carrying a ‘huge amount’ of heroin powerderd and was arrested red handed.
Earlier in November a Pakistani who was convicted of smuggling heroin in his intestines had become the seventh Pakistani beheaded for drug trafficking in Saudi Arabia in a month.
Niaz Mohammad Ghulam Mohammad was executed in Kharj Governorate in the Riyadh Region because he tried to smuggle ‘a large quantity of heroin inside his intestines into the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’, the Ministry of Interior stated.
His death brings the number of foreigners and Saudis executed by the Kingdom for crimes this year to 67, despite concerns expressed by the international community.
The fact that the heroin was found within the man’s intestines suggests he would have ingested the drugs by swallowing a package – a common means for mules to transport illegal drugs.
The Saudi Press Agency reported that a statement from the Ministry said a royal order was issued to execute the death sentence.
