Emir intervenes to save death-row Saudi
MAKKAH — Prince Mishal Bin Abdullah, emir of Makkah, has convinced the family of a murdered man to forgive their son’s killer and stop him from being executed.
Abdullah Faraj Al-Mehmadi, who is in prison, killed Sami Ibrahim Al-Subahi three years ago over a family dispute. Al-Subahi’s family welcomed Prince Mishal’s intercession and agreed to forgive Al-Mehmadi.
The legal heirs of the victim, who were present at Prince Mishal’s office in Jeddah Sunday, declared in front of the emir that they had pardoned the murderer.
Dr. Nasser Al-Zahrani, executive director of the Dispute Reconciliation Committee, praised Prince Mishal for his intervention and extended his thanks to the victim’s family.
