Here's a Cause for Mike Farrell
He can save a young man from execution, and all it will cost him is money
:According to the court statement, the relatives of the deceased have agreed to spare Fawaz’s life on the condition that blood money is given by a March 2006 deadline. The other condition was that Fawaz be banished from the area should the blood money be collected.
The convicted murderer is currently being held at the Dar Al-Ahdath Juvenile Center in Riyadh. Asked if he thought the huge amount of blood money was a way of seizing the opportunity for financial gain, Owayid told Arab News that he was thankful that the victim’s family even agreed to blood money for a chance to spare his brother’s life.
“The original amount demanded was SR5 million. But with the intervention of good people, the deceased boy’s family agreed to lower the blood money to SR3.5 million,” he said. “I cannot say for sure what is in the mind of the deceased boy’s father, but we are thankful that he gave us a chance to spare my brother’s life.”
